Faith formation is catechesis (teaching the faith) which aims to deepen people’s contact with Jesus Christ through educational and enrichment opportunities. Designed to touch the intellect as well as the heart, these programs help people live and experience a more Christ-centered life.
The mission of St. Mary's Faith Formation, is to provide effective ways (programs) of catechesis for people of all ages and backgrounds. Ultimately, faith formation is oriented toward the question: How do I practically and authentically live the Catholic faith?
At St. Mary's, groups like the Religious Education Program, RCIA, and Bible Study are the tools to help us better understand the heart and mind of Jesus Christ and His sacrament, the Catholic Church. And in so doing, we are better able to share with others, to evangelize, our understanding of our Catholic faith.
