Faith Formation

 

Formation ministries strive to deepen the faith life and understanding of adults and children by lifting up Catholic teaching, traditions, and values. Well-formed individuals are better equipped to confidently share the good news of Jesus Christ and Catholic Christianity with a world in need. Children’s formation ministries assist parents in their primary role as shapers of their children’s faith, and support the development of strong families—the “domestic church.”
