Faith Formation Classes

Catholic faith formation nurtures conversion that is directed not only toward service of the believing community, but also to society at large. Jesus called his disciples to go out to all the world to spread the good news of salvation. Catholics do this when they use their gifts and talents in the service of others. By evangelization, proclaiming the Good News of Christ. This is not just a matter of preaching, but showing kindness and charity to others. Faith formation nurtures the mind and the heart so that the gospel message may be evidenced by words and deeds.

Please view the Youth and Adult Faith Formation classes available below. If you require additional information, please contact the church office.

All volunteers must complete the Safe Environment Training offered through the VIRTUS program

All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.

2 Timothy 3:16
