The Formation Committee is responsible for providing life-long Catholic religious education and opportunities for faith enrichment for our parish community.
We usually meet once a month to organize and plan our faith formation opportunities for the parish community.
If you would be interested in serving on the formation committee, contact Mike Raymer, Director of Youth Ministry and Faith Formation in the Parish Office.
The Church’s catechetical mission aims to help the faithful of all ages to grow in both human and Christian maturity!
Three major goals guide, and direct efforts in adult faith formation:
1. Invite and Enable Ongoing Conversion to Jesus in the Holiness of Life.
In response to God’s call to holiness, our faith and life as adult disciples are grounded in developing a personal relationship with Jesus, “the Holy One of God” (Jn 6:69, Mk 1:24). Accordingly, “‘at the heart of catechesis we find, in essence, a Person, the Person of Jesus of Nazareth. . . .’ Catechesis aims at putting ‘people . . . in communion . . . with Jesus Christ.'”
2. Promote and Support Active Membership in the Christian Community.
As adult believers, we learn and live our faith as active members of the Church. Our response to God’s call to community “cannot remain abstract and unincarnated,” but rather, “reveals itself concretely by a visible entry into a community of believers . . . a community which itself is a sign of transformation, a sign of newness of life: it is the Church, the visible sacrament of salvation.”
3. Call and Prepare Adults to Act as Disciples in Mission to the World.
The Church and its adult faithful have a mission in and to the world: to share the message of Christ to renew and to transform the social and temporal order. Faith formation seeks to help each adult believer become “more willing and able to be a Christian disciple in the world.” As the salt of the earth and light for the world (cf. Mt 5:13-16), adult disciples give witness to God’s love and caring will so that, in the power of the Spirit, they renew the face of the earth. (USCCB)
