THREE Education for Ministry adult formation groups are offered at St. Patrick’s for 2019-2020. 

Group one will meet Saturday Mornings from 8:00 to 10:30 a.m.
Group two will meet Wednesday evenings from 7: 00 to 9:30 p.m.
Group one and Group two will meet at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church.

Group three: St. Patrick’s EfM ONLINE is being created for those whose business or family responsibilities restrict their ability to be at St. Patrick’s every week for the two-and-a-half-hour class. This ONLINE Group  will meet Tuesday evenings for Theological Reflection in  ONLINE Zoom meetings from 7:30-9:00 p.m. Broken Arrow time.  The rest of the class discussion of the assigned readings takes place between meetings through the University of the South Blackboard classroom assignments. 

EfM participants enroll for ONE of the groups.  Each group maintains its own group norms and members pledge to respect the  privacy of its exclusive group.  Each group is limited to 6-12 persons.

Groups meet weekly from September through May each year.  The Oklahoma diocese sponsors $100 of each student’s tuition which reduces the cost to $375.    Because our parish is committed to “ all people finding Christ in themselves and others by practicing the Gospel in the world”, additional scholarship funds are also available to assist as needed. 

Contact EfM mentor Rinda Skaggs for  enrollment forms and more information.   Send an email to  or call her at home 918-279-8831.  During June, Rinda will be hosting  online  Zoom Q&A meetings.  Contact Rinda to join a Q&A meeting.
