Catholic Adult Formation & Education

What is CAFÉ? 

CAFÉ is a working committee of our Holy Spirit Parish. Its purpose is to propose to the Parish Education Committee a yearly program plan for adults, who want to continue to deepen their Catholic faith education and experiences. These programs are presented in our social hall. The atmosphere is intended to be casual and encouraging, where folks may hear and have conversations about the Catholic Church, family, friends, daily work, recreational interests, or other concerns. We all experience similar things on our journey with God and each other.  

The National Conference for Catechetical Leadership reflected on: How can parishioners find companions for “The Journey”?  The consensus was the following thoughts:

  • Most adult faith formation issues or problems are in the lecture form of acquiring information. However, a change process is taking place in the way adults gather information. We are now encouraged to use our knowledge to form a genuine and personal relationship with God.
  • Instead of the Church as the sole source of providing information, we now recognize the parish community as caring companions and another source of our information. Rather than understanding for the sake of belonging, we now are called to action, service, and witness for the sake of justice, peace, and ecological survival. We all work together to build the Kingdom of God.
  • Conversations touch the hearts and minds of our companions. We set aside our differences and learn together in a “spiritual conversation."  CAFE is real people sharing real experiences where conversation leads to an increase of our faith and our love of God and the Church.
