Open Wide the Doors to Christ!

Adult Faith Formation offers a variety of opportunities to address adults at different stages of development in their faith. Adult Catechesis promotes mature adult faith for the disciple who is seeking and has been saved by Christ’s redemptive love and is continually undergoing conversion. We do this by fostering discipleship and faith sharing in a variety of opportunities.


Yours in Christ,

Please consider joining us for our current Walking with Purpose (WWP) Bible study program titled Opening Your Heart!

This 16-week Bible study is open to all women ages 18 and up, Catholic, non-Catholic, practicing or non-practicing. Opening Your Heart is the foundational study for all other WWP Bible studies. If you were looking to join our study, this is the place to start! You will be able to jump in at any time without feeling lost.

Some of the questions we are exploring are:

  • How can I conquer my fears?

  • What is the role of the Holy Spirit in my life?

  • What does the Eucharist have to do with my friendship with Christ?

  • What are the limits of Christ’s forgiveness?

  • Why and how should I pray?

  • What is the role of suffering in my life?

  • What challenges will I face in my efforts to follow Jesus more closely?


Please see the Registration form for details about the program.

Under the patronage of Our Blessed Mother, and rooted in the Roman Catholic faith since 1835, St. Mary Delaware is a vital and vibrant community that engages the living God in worship and prayer, and in Word and Sacrament. Led by the Holy Spirit, and imploring the intercession of St. Mary, we desire to imitate her role of being the Christ bearer, and bear witness to her Son’s redeeming love that has been poured upon us in Baptism, and sustained by the practices and teachings of the Church.
