Faith Formation is a life-long process which begins within the family and encompasses every aspect of life as the person grows and matures. It is the process by which we develop and grow in our relationship to the Holy Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and learn to live in, and act out, of that relationship. As we grow closer to God the Father and his son, Jesus, we gradually learn to live in and share the love of God through the guidance of the Holy Spirit. This learning to live in the love of God, and according to his Spirit, is not automatic, but rather requires a sincere and on-going effort and commitment to prayer and education in the faith on our part, coupled with the freely given and abundant grace of God. What is the desired end result, the goal? Eternal life, love, joy, peace, what is the first step? 

Classes meet weekly September through May. 

Youth Faith Formation

Although the parents are the first and primary educators of their children in the Catholic faith, formal formation classes are also important.  All children and youth preparing for sacraments must be enrolled in faith formation.

Classes are Tuesday, 6:30pm-8:30pm.

Adult Faith Formation

There are various opportunities for formation as an adult Catholic. Adults, ages 18+, gather frequently for faith formation, service and fellowship.

Classes are Tuesday, 6:30pm-8:30pm.

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA), is a process developed by the Catholic Church for prospective converts to Catholicism who are above the age of infant baptism. Candidates are gradually introduced to aspects of Catholic beliefs and practices.

Classes are Sunday, 12:00pm-2:00pm.
