Mission and Purpose
The education and formation efforts in the parish are intended to provide formation for a Catholic Christian life. Education and formation ministry takes on many forms in the parish, such as, the school, the religious education program, adult formation, and opportunities for faith sharing, to name a few. Whatever form education and formation takes, it is always guided by the needs of the people. In working to meet these spiritual needs through formational and educational programs, the Commission is helping people grow in their faith and to deepen their relationship with God. The Commission fosters communication and collaboration among the various educational and formational entities. In developing and implementing programs the Commission consults and collaborates with the Pastor, Parish Staff, the School, the Religious Education and the Youth Ministry Staffs and Boards, as well as the other Parish Commissions, and the Diocesan Education/Formation Commission.
