Faith Formation News

Catholic Parishioners:
As you think about your family and friends, is there anyone among them that you think would benefit from learning about the Catholic Faith in a friendly and en-couraging atmosphere. Perhaps there is someone you know who feels God is calling them to a deep-er relationship or a more profound response.
If so, consider taking the attached “Invitation” and person-ally letting them know about our RCIA classes. You are more than welcome to accompany them as they explore the possibilities.
Yours in Christ,
Sheryl M. Peyton, OCDS

Religious Education and Faith Formation help persons of all ages come to know, to love, and to serve God as revealed in Jesus Christ. The aim of our program is to help persons grow in Christian faith so that they may respond to the message of revelation in an authentic and personal way. We foster a Catholic-Christian identity that gives perspective and unity to the many activities in which each engages. Faith Formation continues from the cradle to the grave; the nurturing and growing never cease; the generations have much to share with each other.The love of God is experienced through warm and caring relationships in home, church and community. Knowledge about God, our Biblical heritage and the teaching traditions of the Church are presented at appropriate stages in each person’s development. Through a developing process of relationships, instruction and involvement, Catholic Faith is nurtured. There are many opportunities to volunteer your gifts in Faith Formation.
