Spiritual Formation
Connecting through Learning

Spiritual formation is the lifelong process of growing in our relationship with God, self, others, and all creation.

 

Episcopalians are particularly known for our curiosity and love of learning and St. Andrew's is no exception to this rule.  In fact, you'll find a variety

of formation opportunities throughout the church year to deepen your relationship with God, connect with others, and grow in faith and love.
