The Catholic Community of St. Jude offers numerous opportunities for adults to grow in holiness and spirituality. In accordance with the pastoral plan of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us, we emphasize an attitude of conversion of the heart as the first goal of faith formation. "This attitude fosters a baptismal spirituality for adults... Deepening personal prayer is a significant means toward growth in holiness in daily life" (OHWB 69). The bishops further state "We must go forward firmly rooted in prayer, open to the mystery of God's love, and in touch with the realities of the world" (OHWB 15).
