Do you not know that the runners in the stadium all run in the race, but only one wins the prize? Run so as to win. Every athlete exercises discipline in every way. They do it to win a perishable crown, but we an imperishable one. Thus I do not run aimlessly; I do not fight as if I were shadowboxing. No, I drive my body and train it, for fear that, after having preached to others, I myself should be disqualified.

1 Corinthians 9:24-27

Once you receive your sacraments, you never stop learning about the Catholic faith. Jesus calls us to constantly draw to him and connect to the vine.

Holy Family offers several courses year-round to help adults continue to learn more about their faith, so they can grow in the faith and remain constant witness to that faith.
