Faith Formation



Chairwoman-Linda Adams

The Commission on Christian Education and Faith Formation provides the primary leadership among parishioners in fulfilling the parish’s responsibility for handing on the authentic tradition of the Catholic faith to parishioners of every age;  facilitating the ongoing conversion of Christian disciples; and preaching the Gospel in the local community by word, sacrament and service.

The Education Commission fulfills its mission by being the primary resource for identifying and prioritizing the catechetical needs and objectives of the entire parish;  assisting the pastor in establishing and reviewing policies, programs, and initiatives designed to meet these needs and accomplish these objectives; and assists the other parish commissions in the faith formation and educational aspects of their respective areas of concern.

Key Responsibility Areas

Programs also must be designed as to allow those baptized in another Christian denomination to be received into full communion as soon as they are properly disposed, and not according to a calendar or schedule.
