Faith Formation Ministry

"Our misstion is to live our Catholic Faith in such vivaciousness that we inspire those around us to seek God more deeply and profoundly. We as teachers, profusely human, are called to share our successes and failures before God as teaching moments to our students, always bringing mercy and love to bear witness to the greatness of our Heavenly Father. We seek to touch the hearts of our students, through Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church in such a way as to cultivate a living, breathing faith which will fill their very souls and continue to deepen and grow for the rest of their lives."

CCD is held Sunday mornings from 8:30-9:45 a.m. in the H.I.P. building. Eighth grade students meet in the Church Hall.
