    You may have noticed that the titles of our Faith Formation staff have been changed to reflect a Discipleship along with the Formation element. The department’s goal is to establish
    strategies to accomplish our parish goal of creating a culture of missionary discipleship. 
    We welcome all and provide opportunities for every person to grow in holiness and draw closer to Jesus Christ – every day and at every stage of life. The added emphasis on discipleship is a wider understanding of the work of formation that builds faith and leads to living as a disciple. We seek to provide opportunities to draw closer to Christ first by an encounter of Him, our risen, living and true God who speaks to us through the Church’s sacred scriptures, her life of prayer and worship, through academic study and by personal witness and faith sharing. The department seeks to help each person reach their religious potential, live in a vibrant relationship with Christ and be formed within the tradition of the Catholic Church in order to be sent for witness, evangelization, and mission.
