Family Ministry Vision Statement

The vision for Family Ministry is driven by six core beliefs:

  • We believe the Sunday Gospel and Eucharist provide the central focus for living our faith in our daily lives.

  • We believe in building strong households of faith and family.

  • We believe adults committed to learning and sharing their faith create strong households of faith.

  • We believe growing in Catholic understanding is a lifelong process.

  • We believe in forming the whole person, intellectually, spiritually, and relationally.

  • We believe we are called to continuing conversion toward the words and ways of Jesus Christ.

Lifelong Faith Formation Opportunities

In keeping with these six core beliefs, we offer a wide array of faith formation opportunities. We hope you will take advantage of these offerings as your personal commitment to lifelong growth in faith. See the weekly bulletin for our current Family Ministry programs.
