Religious Education (Faith Formation)

As a Faith Formation team, their goal is to join together in supporting parents and anyone else who enters our church doors through each step of their faith journey to know, love and serve the Lord. Children need the structure of family and the support of their parish to ground them in their Faith Journey. Religious education volunteers help plan, organize and direct religious education for the congregation’s family with school age children.
