Faith Formation

Mission Statement

Forming lifelong disciples who fully participate in our Catholic-Christian life.
2020-2021 Safe Open and Preparedness Plan

We have implemented our 2020-2021 Safe Open and Preparedness Plan, which we encourage you to read.

See our FORMED.org resources page for ways all families and individuals can grow in faith during and after these current circumstances.

Our Ministries

  • Christ Centered
    • We desire the fullness of our Catholic Christian life in ourselves and those we serve and commit to serve with integrity.
  • Humble Yet Confident
    • We know God is the source of all we do, and we accomplish all by God’s grace; as branches on the Vine, we work hard and remain flexible.
  • Competent
    • We know Christ, know our tasks, know where to collaborate, and know where to seek assistance.
  • In Communion
    • As members of the Body of Christ we draw others to joyful participation in the Body; we strive for joyful unity with the Church, our parish, these ministries, and one another as fellow disciples of Jesus Christ.


Our Faith Formation and Sacramental Preparation year has begun. We look forward to sharing the joy of knowing and living the love of Jesus Christ with you. Below you will find information, helpful links, and downloads for all of our Faith Formation programs.

*All grades began the year in a large-group format, not in individual classrooms; logistics for various age/grade levels have been communicated to registered families in September. Moving to small-groups will depend on the global and regional health situation, which we monitor continuously. Families with high-risk individuals or discomfort with gathered settings may choose the at-home only option; all materials echo the at-church program, forming one ministry.
