Adult and Young Adult Faith Formation

In Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us, the pastoral plan for adult faith formation, the United States bishops made it clear that “adult faith formation, by which people consciously grow in the life of Christ through experience, reflection, prayer, and study, must be “the central task in [this] catechetical enterprise,” becoming “the axis around which revolves the catechesis of childhood and adolescence as well as that of old age.”5 This can be done specifically through developing in adults a better understanding of and participation in the full sacramental life of the Church.

To make this vision a reality, Saint Paul Cathedral Parish is making a commitment to adult faith formation, positioning it at the heart of our catechetical vision and practice. We pledge to support adult faith formation without weakening our commitment to our other essential educational ministries.



Young adults are aged 21 through 35/40. Please reach out and spread the word about what we are doing.

THEOLOGY ON TAP. Is an opportunity for young adults in the greater Oakand area to come together on the first Monday of the month at a local restaurant where we can have some food and beverages, get to know each other better, and to hear a speaker talk about some aspect of our Catholic faith. There will be time for questions and discussions. We invite all our young adults to mark their calendars and invite other young adults to join us. It will be a great way to network with the young adults in our parish and in the greater Oakland area. All are welcome.
