Faith Formation

Serving the families of St Mary Parish & St Anthony of Padua Parish

August 2021

We are hard at work re-vamping our Faith Formation program to become “Life-Long Faith Formation” for all ages. We want to give families the fall to settle into new routines and hope to make it a time for you to focus on coming to Mass as a family. 

Our faith formation program, including an adult Alpha program, will begin in January and continue weekly for 12 weeks through April. Class offerings for all ages will be on Sunday mornings before the 10:30 Mass at St. Anthony's and will include breakfast! Registration for all participants will be online starting in October. Look for more information in the bulletin, on our website, during announcements at Masses, and in a letter coming from Father D in September. (Please note: we will have one Fall class, Confirmation 2.)

Parents are the first teachers, so always be your child's best example. Accompany your child to weekly Mass, pray with him/her, talk about Jesus, the Holy Family and the Church. It’s the best way to make it easier for your child to absorb what the teachers teach. For the young students, we have a presentation of the 5 main prayers to learn for First Communion - found on the right of this page.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Blessings to you,
