St. Joseph/St. Raphael Parish tries to provide 6-8 special, or one-time, adult faith formation opportunities per year. We try to schedule these events at varying times so as to accommodate different schedules. We also try to pass along the best opportunities for faith formation held in our local area.

ALL ARE INVITED TO COME MEET OUR HONORED GUESTS!
June 24, 2018
St. Raphael Church
Join us for this evening of peaceful music, contemplative prayer and silent reflection.
True to the ecumenical origins of the Taize tradition in France, this contemplative service is a collaboration between First Baptist Church, Christ Episcopal Church, and St. Joseph/St Raphael Catholic Church as well as members of other faith communities in Springfield. An interdenominational foundation was an intentional part of the original Taize experience which, amid the conflict of World War II, sought to bring people together in a spirit of generosity and reconciliation.
The organizers plan to offer the service quarterly. The June service will be held at St. Raphael.
