Adult Book and Bible Studies

Each part of the year we will be doing studies as a larger group to help enhance our faith knowledge and bring us closer to God through the knowledge of the Bible, Tradition, and other aspects of the Trinity. Look in the Bulletin for times and places for these studies which will be going on year round. These are all low cost or no cost studies that will be explored by the group. These are done in a fun setting and no sign up is necessary. Just come and enjoy the fellowship of other St. Boniface members. Any Questions? Call the Church Office at 618-6566450 or Email Clyde Nosser at cnosser@st-boniface.com.

Our Adult Faith Formation ministry seeks to engage the particular needs and interests of the parish family. To be faithful and effective it will offer, over time, a comprehensive and systematic presentation and exploration of the core elements of Catholic faith and practice—a complete initiation into a Catholic way of life. It will do so in a way that is accessible to adults and relates to their life experiences, helping them to form a Christian conscience and to live their lives in the world as faithful disciples of Jesus.

St. Boniface Church, the Adult Faith Formation office offers a variety of opportunities for parishioners to increase their understanding of the faith.  Listed below are the current opportunities. Any Questions? Call the Church Office at 618-656-6450 or Email Clyde Nosser at cnosser@st-boniface.com.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

If you or someone you know is interested in knowing more about the Catholic faith or becoming a member of the Catholic faith, we invite you to RCIA (the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults).  RCIA is a 7 month process of getting to know about/becoming a member of the Catholic faith.  We meet most Monday evenings 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. from September  until the Easter Vigil.  Older children, ages 6-13, who wish to be baptized into the Catholic faith have their own sessions on Monday evenings at the same time as RCIA.  This program for the children is called RCIC (the Rite of Christian Initiation for Children).  If you wish more information, contact the Parish Office at 618-6566450 or Clyde Nosser at cnosser@st-boniface.com. All RCIA classes are open to all parishioners.  Parishioners are always welcome to attend and renew and deepen their understanding of the teaching and Traditions of the Catholic Church.  Check the bulletin for current topics and meeting information.

St. Boniface Lenten and Advent Retreats

St. Boniface is offering Short Retreats in Lent and Advent every year twice a year. The events are free and open to all and include a wonderful breakfast and timely spiritual subjects that effect our everyday lives. Look in the Bulletin at those times of the year to enjoy community and the companionship of our Catholic fellowship. If you have any question please email Clyde Nosser at cnosser@st-boniface.com or call the Church Office at 618-6566450.

Drinking and Dining with Dominicans

We are beginning a new series called Drinks and Dining with Dominicans. We will have a Dominican priest here at a popular watering hole in the Edwardsville area once a month for the sessions. We will be enjoying the company of our fellow St. Boniface members and learning more deeply about our Catholic faith in a fun setting. Any Questions? Call the Church Office at 618-6566450 or Email Clyde Nosser at cnosser@st-boniface.com.

40 Days for Life

WE ARE CURRENTLY ASKING EVERYONE TO MAKE A HOLY HOUR FROM HOME TO END ABORTION IN OUR COMMUNITY AND IN THE WORLD.

At multiple times during the year a National Group – 40 Days for Life -Coordinates the Churches in the Metro East Area, and they take 40 days in a row to pray at the Hope Clinic for Women in Granite City Illinois in the hope for a peaceful end to abortion. The group is completely peaceful and through a prayerful dialogue hopes to save one soul at a time. St. Boniface will be taking up the banner several times this Lent by taking 2 days during this holy time. If you have an interest you can contact Clyde Nosser at cnosser@st-boniface.com or call 618-6160521 for more information.

Martha and Marys

Martha and Marys are a Women’s Spirituality and Support Group. We meet every Tuesday during the school year after the 8:00 a.m. Mass until 10:00 a.m. The group chooses a book to read and discuss at our weekly meetings. There is much talk and a lot of laughter as we share the ups and downs of our everyday lives as well as our spiritual lives. All are welcome. It is not necessary to be present for every meeting to benefit from this group. Come as you are able. We meet in the Acorn Room in the lower level of the Church.
