FORMATION

Spiritual formation is a lifelong process towards discipleship that is living, fruitful and essential.

Prayer, knowledge of scripture, tradition and reason, and experiences with spiritual leaders are part of each Christian’s formation journey. Following are a few ways to connect to find the way of love.

ADULT FORUM SUNDAYS
10:15am - 11:00am

 

Adult Forum is a series of thematic lectures from clergy and visiting guests that are scheduled two to three Sundays most months during fall, winter and spring. Sunday School for children and our nursery runs concurrently with Adult Forum; therefore childcare is provided through these ministries. 

Check our weekly E-Updates for a preview of our next Adult Forum.

You are invited to make St. Mary’s your church home.  Twice a year, we host a four-week series in our Chapel to allow newcomers the opportunity to learn about the history and story of our parish, how we worship, what we believe, and how individuals and families can connect to the life of the parish and our many outreach ministries. 

If you have questions, please contact Fr. Nunnally at pete.nunnally@stmarysarlington.org or call 703-527-6800.
