Pastor’s Message:
Christian Formation Is a Team Effort

Any great parish has a great Christian formation program. Teaching religion so that it is fun and makes sense to people is the hallmark of good Christian formation. Religion can never be like those classes in school where we said, “Why do I have to learn this; I’ll never use this again.” No. Religion has to be taught so that people know they will need this, use this, appreciate this, and want this for the rest of their lives.

Christian formation of our adults and youth probably ranks second only to the liturgy as the most important work of the parish. To teach, catechize, and form adults and children in the faith is the greatest gift we can give them. God bless our many catechists in Christian Formation! At our parish we have over 320 students receiving Christian formation through our Catholic school, and almost 600 enrolled in the parish Christian formation programs.

While it is right for our children to come together with their peers to learn about the faith, it is in the home where faith is nourished and lived out on a daily basis. Christian formation is a team effort between catechists and parents. So live your faith at home and come to Mass each Sunday. Otherwise religion classes will be useless.

Keep our programs for youth successful by giving them your active support.

 

Daily Scripture

As Catholics, we are encouraged to read Scripture, especially focusing on the readings included in our liturgies. An easy way to find these and other Scripture texts is to link to the site for the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops:
