The Adult Education Team (AET) provides monthly speakers, DVD series, and other opportunities from September through May.

 
Pride, envy, anger, sloth, greed, gluttony and lust: these "seven deadly sins" are patterns of dysfunction that keep us separated from God and ultimately lead to unhappiness. Join us as we embark on Fr. Robert Barron's explaration of these seven sinful patterns and also learn how praticing countervailing virtues can break the cycle of sin.
Our parish will offer the 7-week Seven Deadly Sins and Seven Lively Virtues program twice weekly: Mondays, January 8, 2018 - February 19, 2018 from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm or Thursdays, January 11, 2018 - February 22, 2018 from 9:00 am - 10:30 am.  We will offer childcare on Thursday mornings in the Multipurpose room; however, reservations are required. There is no cost unless you wish to purchase a book for $15. We will order books, but orders need to be placed by December 21. You may pay for your book, prior to the first session, at Shalom or the Parish Office. If you did not purchase a book through St. Pius prior to December 21, you may go to the Word on Fire website and purchase a book online after December 21.

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)

RCIA is a beautiful, spiritual process where we invite those interested in becoming Catholic to learn about our faith. Starting September 5th, we will begin RCIA that will meet on Tuesday evenings, from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm, in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John conference rooms on the southside of the church. Adults have the opportunity to learn about Catholicism, reflect on scripture, and deepen ones prayer life. If one chooses to become Catholic, reception into the Church typically occurs during the Easter Vigil. If you feel that God is calling you to inquire about Catholicism, contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 317-257-1085. Read testimonies of those who have previously participated in RCIA. If you or someone you know is interested in participating in the RCIA process, please fill out this form and return it to Bev Hansberry.
