Adult Formation

While our Catholic Formation/Religious Education (Sunday School) program offers a well-balanced curriculum, it is you, the Parents/Guardians, who are the primary educators of your children in the ways of the Catholic Faith.

Parents/Guardians teach and share their knowledge of our Catholic Faith through example: by living out the Gospel message and worshiping together as a family.

To assist you in sharing the Catholic Faith with your child, we are please to offer the "We Believe" Adult Catholic Faith Formation program. This program is designed to update you, our Parents/Guardians, in the areas of our Faith, Sacraments, Prayer, and Catholic living. It gives you the opportunity to refresh your memory, renew your spirit and perhaps understand some things a little better by this enrichment and discussion.

All Parents/Guardians whose children are preparing to receive the Sacrament of First Eucharist and Confirmation are required to complete this seven (7) session program. The group will meet one evening once a month beginning in the Fall on Tuesdays, at 7:30-9:00pm in the Church Hall.

Some of the topics to be discussed are:

  • Creed/Faith and your Child
  • Baptism and Confirmation
  • Eucharist and the Mass
  • Penance and the Anointing of the Sick
  • Marriage and Holy Orders
  • Prayer and Liturgy
  • Morality and the Bible

 "We Believe" Adult Formation is open to all Parents/Guardians in our Parish Religious Education program but must be completed before your child can receive First Eucharist or confirmation.

A certificate will be give to all Parents/Guardians who complete the course. Attendance will be taken. At least one Parent/Guardian must attend each meeting. All parishioners in general will also be invited to attend.
