Adult Evangelization and Catechesis: Study, Faith Sharing and Fellowship
To support the Parish commitment to "One God, One People in Christ, One Community of Love Guided by the Holy Spirit to Impact Lives. To achieve this by deepening our relationship with the Trinity, promoting knowledge of our Catholic Faith and achieving a greater sense of Community with others.
Adult Faith Formation is responsible for creating and sustaining events and programs that nurture the development of mature faith in adult Catholics. The American bishops have stated that the education and Christian formation of adults must be a priority for the Church. Therefore, at St. Catherine of Alexandria, we provide many opportunities for spiritual growth and education, which should lead to greater appreciation of the richness of our Catholic faith and traditions, and to deeper commitment to putting our energies to work in spreading the Good News of Jesus. The Adult Evangelization and Catechesis ministry is open to the organization of new activities and groups. If you recognize a need or have ideas, or would like more information please contact,
Marcus Jones at (909) 241- 7485
Meets each evening at 7 p.m. via the parish Facebook page and via Zoom. To participate by phone on Zoom, call 669-900-9128.

The term "Article of faith" (De fide) is used to identify the chief truths which Christians must hold. Articles of Faith are the fundamental principles, which the Catholic accepts as absolute truth, without discussion as being certain and sure by virtue of the authority of God. All adult Catholics should have an understanding of these truths. As Catholics, we believe that we are saved by the grace of God which we accept in faith and live out in knowledge of His Word, in love of Him and His people, and in service to our faith community and the greater community. To fulfill this, we believe it is important to attend missions, retreats, workshops, and seminars; to be educated in the catechism of the Catholic Church and other Catholic materials; to read, pray, and understand the Bible and the Church's commentaries on it; and to gather as one people in faith. Our Vision is to involve the entire world in this endeavor, starting in our own parish.

Small Faith Groups
Matthew 18:20 says: "For where two or three are gathered together in my
Through community we can encounter Christ. By encountering Him in this way, we can recharge with one another during the week to continue living the Gospel. We were created for relationship and community! One of the best ways we can grow and bring together faith and our daily lives is through being part of a small group made up of others from the same worshiping community.
Small Faith Communities are made up of individuals and families of all ages who meet in small groups in their homes to share their faith and to pray together. Jesus invites us all "to Come and See" the exciting possibilities of a Small Christian Sharing Community. Deep friendships and support from a small group community can be God's way of carrying you through tough times and magnifying your joys!
Typically there are 8-12 members in a group who meet anywhere between once a week to once a month. Groups meet in a private home. During their time together, members engage in hospitality, dive into scripture, pray, and share their own faith journeys. Groups meet regularly at times that are convenient for them. Please consider joining or starting a group! If you are interested in either being in a Small Faith Group, leading a Small Faith Group or Hosting a Small Faith Group in your home, please contact: Marcus Jones at 951-781-9855 Ext. 33
