These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
--Deuteronomy 6:6-9 (NIV)
As a Catholic community, our mission and living faith call us to provide our children, youth and adults with opportunities for on-going training and enrichment in the Catholic tradition. Based on the principle that "Parents are the primary educators in the Faith" (General Directory for Catechesis (GDC) 255), elementary, middle school and teen formation revolves around regular gatherings that will support the faithful activities in your homes and the community. We strive to offer a learning experience that flows over into the family's everyday life. We recognize that faith formation is a lifetime journey that continues to enrich, nourish and guide us in our Catholic Christian heritage from childhood through adolescence and adulthood. We offer various adult programs to nourish the faith of our community and build fellowship through adult enrichment and formation.
What is Faith Formation?
It is an on-going process of discovery, learning, sharing, and deepening our faith and our understanding of our faith so that we can become life long believers. It involves the following process:
Individual’s journey of faith
Present experiences/past experiences
