|Lifelong Faith Formation|
The Parish Vision
The Parish Vision is Lifelong Faith Formation. The vision is to engage people of ALL ages in the encounter with Jesus Christ through the experience of church life, the Scriptures, Catholic traditions—through Sunday liturgy, the sacraments, Church year feasts and seasons, justice and service, and prayer and devotions. It is a formation that reflects on the significance and meaning of living our faith life at home and in the world.
Lifelong faith formation includes two key experiences in the Christian life: conversion to Christ and learning on our shared faith - the two go hand in hand. Sometimes the learning process produces deeper conversion. Other times, the conversion process leads to learning. These two faith experiences of the head and heart are the groundwork of lifelong faith formation.
The Pastoral Council supports the vision of lifelong faith formation and led our ministry leaders at formation gatherings in the Spring and Fall 2011. The Pastoral Council and Ministry Leaders coordinated the Ash Wednesday Parish Gathering. Each of our ministries is an integral part of the implementation of our vision and offers an opportunity for our parishioners to contribute their time, talent and treasure to accomplish important work within and outside our parish community.
