Youth Faith Formation
To transmit Christ's message of salvation through the use of contemporary methods and language as well as Scripture and Church documents. The Faith Formation Program continues the mission of Jesus as Son of God, Servant and Savior of all; provides the opportunity to hear His message; and encourages active growth in the liturgical and sacramental life of the Church.
Purpose: To help primary and elementary age children appreciate the weekly worship and faith formation experience with their families.
Sunday Faith Formation will ...
1. Assist parents in forming children as Catholics and prepare them to celebrate the sacraments.
2. Encourage parents to model their faith by actively participating with their children in the liturgical life of the Church.
Parents and children will attend Mass weekly. Youth will participate in the Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) during one of the Sunday Mass. Children over the age of seven will also attend one of the Sunday Faith Formation sessions between the Masses.
Volunteers are needed as catechists for CLOW and Faith Formation sessions
Meeting Time: Sunday mornings, during the school year. Four Parish Faith Formation Sunday mornings for parents and youth (see Parish Calendar for time and place)
