OF SPIRITUAL FORMATION
The Academy of Spiritual Formation is our home for adult spiritual formation. We understand that seekers and learners come from a variety of backgrounds, ask different questions, and respond to a multitude of learning environments.
Within the Academy framework, we don’t do "one thing." We offer a plethora of formation opportunities presented by clergy, teachers within our community,
or from our network of local and national teachers.
Jan Hilton leads two ongoing groups with lively discussion and reflection on readings from a variety of topics and focuses. Each group is reading the same book. So pick the best time for you to join one of her Wisdom Class:
Tuesdays 10 - 11:30 am In-person in the Oratory
Thursdays 10 - 11:30 am via Zoom
To sign up or for more information, email Jan.
The classes are currently reading and discussing Rough Sleepers: Dr. Jim O’Connell’s Urgent Mission to Bring Healing to Homeless People by Tracy Kidder. This is the touching story of a Harvard-trained physician who has spent over 30 years riding in an outreach van in Boston. Jan says that she has enjoyed reading Tracy Kidder's books for years, and this one is a delight to read. She has copies of the book available, which cost $24.

ADULT FORMATION CLASS
Various classes are offered at different times. All offer a beautiful and safe space for creating community and deepening connections. Classes are led by visiting teachers, our priest, and amazing people within our own community.

This is a wonderful space for those who have deep questions, concerns, and/or longings about God and religion, as well as for those who are ready to go beyond what they have already experienced and learned.
The richness of the Deep Shift experience is as much the group-sharing experience that forms over time as it is the wisdom and different voices of truth that inspire us, challenge us, or move us in the way we live and grow in the world.
Please reach out to Debbie Dunham, Gayle Gottlich, or Fr. Jonathan of your interest to learn more - or email us.
EfM (Education for Ministry)
"Education for Ministry (EfM) is a program of personal renewal and spiritual transformation based upon individual study and practice. Deeply rooted in the Christian tradition, yet open to all, EfM invites us to engage in study, worship, and theological reflection. Guided by trained mentors, participants meet each week in a small group setting for a period of 2.5-3 hours.
Over the course of nine months, group members are invited to connect more deeply with God and our role in bringing God’s healing love to a hurt and broken world. New groups begin in September and run through mid-May.
