Learn: Adult Formation

Current Programs

“Our steps are directed by God who strengthens those who walk in the way.” Psalm 37:24

The Adult Formation Program seeks to provide a variety of opportunities for deepening our understanding of our Christian heritage, for engaging with the intersection of our faith and mission in the world, for nurturing ourselves and our families, and for growing together as Christians. The committee sponsors a regular Sunday morning program at 9:00 and 11:15 am as well as Quiet Days, workshops, and weekday offerings. Our offerings are designed in style and content to respond to the varied needs of parishioners. Led by our clergy, members of the congregation, and outside guests, our adult events include concerts, lectures, seminars, forums, webinars, book groups, movie series, quiet days, and Bible study.

The Sunday Adult Forum touches on every aspect of living as a follower of Christ, this program has become one of Epiphany’s most appreciated offerings.

Small Groups for Study, Prayer, and Fellowship


Bible Study

Join us on Sunday morning at 9:30 am in the Suter Room for Bible study. We gather to reflect on this week's readings and how we might apply the lessons to our lives. Our conversations are full of wisdom and laughter no preparation is necessary. Please contact Jake Montwieler with any questions. 

Sacred Ground: An Anti-Racist Group at Epiphany

We are excited to announce the formation of two new anti-racist learning groups at Epiphany, using the Episcopal curriculum called Sacred Ground.

Sacred Ground is a small group discussion series on race, built around a curriculum of documentary films and readings. Groups will walk through chapters of America’s history of race and racism, while weaving in threads of family story, economic class, and political and regional identity.

Sacred Ground is part of the Episcopal Church’s long-term commitment to racial healing, reconciliation, and justice in our personal lives, ministries, and our society. It is open to all, and is especially designed to help white people talk with other white people. For more information, please click here.

A pilot group at Epiphany recently completed this course, and found it to be thought-provoking, challenging (and emotional at times). Parishioners who have completed the course will serve as facilitators for these new groups.

One group will meet virtually on Mondays via Zoom beginning January 30, 2023, while the second will meet in person at Epiphany on Tuesdays beginning January 31. Each group will be limited to 12 participants and will meet from 7:00-8:30 pm for 10 sessions over approximately 12-14 weeks, with some weeks off for school vacation, etc. The curriculum for each group will be the same.

To sign up, please email the office or call 781-729-1922.  If you have any questions about the course, please contact Suzanne Owayda. We are eager to share this material and deepen our beloved Epiphany community’s commitment to and understanding of racial justice.


Quiet Days

During the seasons of Advent and Lent, a Saturday Quiet Day is offered at the church.  A Quiet Day is a half-day retreat offering three meditations interspersed with silence and prayer.

The entire parish building is set aside this morning for quiet prayer following three short meditations. During the quiet time, those who wish can meet with the leader for individual confession or for a conversation. The day concludes with noonday prayers in the Nave. It is not necessary to commit to the entire morning — feel free to come for as much or as little as your schedule permits. All are welcome!
