Adult Faith Formation

Growing in Our Catholic Faith

Spirit if Christ offers different types of opportunities for ongoing adult faith formation.

Becoming Catholic | OCIA

OCIA – The Order of Christian Initiation of Adults – is the ancient process whereby adults come to enter the Catholic Church.  It is a spiritual journey involving prayer, study and fellowship.  The goal of OCIA is to learn more about the Catholic faith, to deepen one’s love for God, and to walk more closely as a disciple of Jesus.

Great Adventure Bible Study

Join us for an amazing bible study!

The Great Adventure is a Catholic Bible learning system that makes the complex simple by teaching the story (the narrative) of the Bible. Every day, more and more people are encountering God’s Word through the methods taught in The Great Adventure. The Great Adventure Bible Study makes reading the Bible not only easy, but exciting! Click on Events in the main menu and then registrations for current information if it is available.  The Great Adventure program holds classes at Spirit of Christ, Shrine of St. Anne’s and at St. Joan of Arc, all in Arvada.


Small Church Communities

A Small Church Community (SCC) is a small group of adults and, at times, children who gather to reflect on their lives in the light of the Gospel and to share their Christian faith through prayer, friendship and service.

The early Christians gathered in small groups, most frequently in a home. That experience allowed a deep sharing of faith and life. Today, SCCs facilitate that deep sharing in the presence of trusted friends. Relationships are formed in which sharing, listening and genuine communication are nurtured. The sharing of faith and life leads to action on behalf of others.

For any questions about SCC, then please contact Susan at 303-867-9165 or

Walking with Purpose

Walking with Purpose is a Catholic Bible study for women that aims to bring women to a deeper personal relationship with Jesus Christ by offering personal study and small group discussion that link our everyday challenges with the solutions given to us through the teachings of Christ and the Roman Catholic Church. Next session:
