The Church teaches that an adult Catholic faith is characterized by three things: (1) Encounter: experiencing an ongoing conversion to Jesus; (2) Growth: being an active member in our Christian community; and (3) Being Sent: living as disciples in mission to the world. We are blessed at St. John Neumann with formal programs (listed below) that encourage these Christian goals. In reality, we encounter Christ, we grow in Christ, and we are sent by Christ in a myriad of ways. In the end, as Christian adults, we must keep our hearts open and be courageous. Christ calls us to orient our entire selves to him! Christ calls us to metanoia—a radical change of heart!
