About This Ministry

Adult Faith

Youth Faith

Welcome to St. Mary's Education and Formation Ministry webpage. The mission of St. Mary's Education and Formation Ministry is to deliver catechesis to adults and children which focuses on fostering initial and ongoing growth in a personal friendship with Jesus Christ through encounter with Him in the Sacraments, Sacred Scripture, prayer and sharing His mercy and love with others. For more information faith formation opportunities, follow the links on the buttons to the left.

The primary tasks of the Education and Formation Ministry are to:

(1) Promote knowledge of the faith – both Scripture and Tradition
(2) Educate for full, conscious, and active participation in the liturgical life of the Church;
(3) Provide moral formation by teaching and modelling what it means to live out God's love in the world;
(4) Teach to pray by bringing meaning and understanding to prayer: its words, silence, singing; memorization and spontaneity;
(5) Educate for community life by helping believers learn to live well in community and to develop a genuine sense of belonging and caring responsibility for one another.;
(6) Educate to a Missionary Dimension by instilling a true sense of mission in believers and equipping them to be faithful witnesses to the Good News in all aspects of their social, professional, and cultural lives.

The Education and Formation Ministry is split into two sub-ministries - Adult Faith Formation and Youth Faith Formation. Both ministries meet once per month to grow together in faith and knowledge about ministry and to plan upcoming formation activities. For more information about the ministry, contact the Parish Catechetical Leader.
