The Faith Formation Program of St. Mary’s Parish provides adult, youth and children with the knowledge and necessary skills to become faithful followers of Jesus.
At Baptism, parents promise to raise their children in the faith. The church teaches that the parents are the first and best teachers of their children in the matters of faith. Our role as catechists is not only to teach the children, but also support the ongoing faith growth of the parents.
The Faith Formation Program incorporates the six tasks from the National Directory for Catechesis.
- Promotes the knowledge of the faith
- Promotes the knowledge and meaning of the Liturgy and Sacraments.
- Promotes the moral formation in Jesus Christ.
- Teaches parishioners how to pray.
- Prepares parishioners to live and work with one another, and participate actively in the life and mission of the Church.
- Promotes a missionary spirit that prepares the faithful to be present as Christians throughout the world.
