What is Lifelong Faith Formation?

Lifelong Faith Formation offers your parish opportunities to grow in their faith, to deepen their awareness of themselves, the community, and of God’s place in their lives. Faith Formation helps to bring children and adults into a fuller awareness of our faith, the Scriptures, the Church, Liturgy, the Sacraments and other issues of our day. We view the formation of faith and conscience as a lifelong process that continues in the heart and home long after formal religion classes end. Faith Formation encourages families to journey together toward a deeper relationship with God.
