Faith Formation

Faith Formation is a term that describes efforts to teach the Catholic faith in ways that draw people of all ages closer to Jesus and deepen their participation in His Church.

Faith begins in the home, which is why we offer family catechesis as the basis for religious education formation. As the Catechism states “Parents have the first responsibility for the education of their children” (CCC 2223). We partner with parents in their role as primary catechists. This includes a relationship with Jesus, teaching catechesis, and sacramental preparation.

St. Mary’s offers adult faith formation opportunities to introduce, continue, and deepen/renew our relationship with God and our understanding of the Church and Her teachings.
