Vision & Mission: At the heart of catechesis we find a Person, the Person of Jesus of Nazareth. …  Accordingly, the definitive aim of catechesis is to put people not only in touch but in communion, in intimacy, with Jesus Christ: only He can lead us to the love of the Father in the Spirit and make us share in the life of the Holy Trinity. (Cf. Catechesi Tradendae, # 5, Pope St. John Paul II)

John 1:38 & 39 “Jesus turned and saw [two of John’s disciples] following him and said to them, ‘What are you looking for?’ They said to him, ‘Rabbi’ (which translated means Teacher), ‘where are you staying?’ He said to them, ‘Come, and you will see.’ So they went and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day.”

Jesus invites the two disciples to come and get to know him. He doesn’t offer a package of information, but an invitation to come and discover his activity in their lives. Faith formation is a lifelong process of entering ever deeper into communion with the Lord and sharing that faith with others.

Parents: Parents have a primary and irreplaceable role in handing on the faith to their children. The Church calls the family the domestic church since it is the first place that children hear the Word of God and the first place where they experience being loved. We are committed to assisting and supporting parents in their role as the first heralds of the faith. (Cf. Lumen Gentium # 11, Second Vatican Council)

Tentative Schedules for Fall 2017

Sacramental Preparation

Christ is always present in His Church, especially in her liturgical celebrations (Cf. Sacrosanctum Concilium # 7, Second Vatican Council) thus at the heart of the liturgy, especially the celebration of the Eucharist, we encounter a person, Jesus of Nazareth. (Cf. World Youth Day 2005, Cologne Germany, Pope Benedict XVI)
