Faith Formation
The ministry of Faith Formation recognizes that during the last twenty years parish religious education has broadened and deepened into a more comprehensive ministry, which encompasses the ongoing process of faith formation. This change reflects the growing understanding that following Christ is an ongoing conversion, not only involving the mind, but the whole person.
