Faith Formation (Grades 1-5)
Our Faith Formation program is led by Pat Walsh, Pastoral associate for Faith Formation, and classes are taught by volunteer catechists from the St. Joseph’s Church Community. Faith Formation classes are taught by volunteer catechists from the St.Joseph’s Church Community. Faith Formation classes are split by grade and meet on Monday afternoons from 4:00-5:00pm.
God our Heavenly Father, you have given us the gift of these catechists to be heralds of the gospel
to our parish family.We lift them up to you in thanksgiving and intercede for them concerning their hopes and needs. May we be attentive to the presence of your Word in them, a Word that lifts up and affirms, calls
forth and challenges, is compassionate and consoles.We pray that our parish family will always be blessed with those who have responded to the call to share in Christ’s prophetic mission as catechists. May we too be open to the universal call to service that Christ addresses to all of his disciples, contributing our gifts to the communion of faith, the Church. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen
