Our Parish’s Philosophy About Faith Formation
Faith Formation engages the mind, heart, and will. Our goal is to develop cognitive and affective abilities and nurture spiritual growth leading to an adult commitment to Christ. We seek to be a parish where people of all ages can grow in knowledge, wisdom, and understanding of God through Christ and His Church so that they become reflections of Christ in all that they do. All parishioners are strongly encouraged to continue to learn and grow in faith so that they can live the faith, pass it on to the next generation, and share it with the wider world. Faith formation includes becoming familiar with the symbols, creed, actively participating in the sacramental life of the Church. Since effective faith develops through relationships and in the community, we seek to build a welcoming and accepting parish through friendship, hospitality, and active works of charity.
