Education

Adult Faith Formation

There are many opportunities for adults to learn and grow in their faith here at St. Anthony’s. We offer book clubs, bible studies, movie nights and also invite guest speakers from the Greenville area to help our members engage their minds and mature as Jesus’ disciples.

Religious Education

Religious education prepares our children and adults to live faith-filled lives, based on the life of our Savior Jesus Christ. The goal is to inspire everlasting love for God and his people. The greatest satisfaction of this ministry is that in helping others to grow in faith, we also grow in our own faith. We are inspired to live spiritual lives that are examples for others to follow. We serve God by serving other people. The faithful involved in this ministry accept responsibility for preparation. To register click here.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

The faithful in this ministry help to gradually introduce adults and older children to the Roman Catholic Faith and way of life. The faithful sponsor an interested person and journey with them through different stages leading to full initiation (receiving the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist). This ministry welcomes non-Catholics or returning Catholics, and takes them through conversion as a “spiritual journal,” aided by those who are already faithful Catholics.

Christian Stewardship at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church

In baptism we are called to model our lives after Jesus Christ. Our vocation is to give ourselves away. The extent of our relationship with Jesus is the extent we give of ourselves. In doing so, we become one with Jesus. Through prayer, you’ll figure out what you can give back within our Liturgy, Education, Works of Mercy and Community Life ministries.
