 Family Faith Formation is:

Head, Heart, and Hands


Thinking, Feeling, and Doing 

      Faith Formation – is lifelong!

Parents are their children’s best role model.  Studies show that faith formation is passed on by the practice of the family.

Volunteers:  We are always looking for people who live their faith. The process of passing on the catholic faith is due to the generous support of volunteers. If you are interested in 'echoing your faith', office help, door monitor, etc., we have a ministry for you.
