Faith Formation

Faith Formation is for everyone and it is a life long process.

As a child, one begins to gradually learn about the foundations of our Catholic faith, celebrate Sacraments, and become a follower of Jesus.

As an adult, in a variety of ways, one continues to enrich the faith of their youth, grow into a deeper relationship with the Lord and give witness to their faith through discipleship.
