Faith formation is much more than simply teaching about God. God is a ‘someone,’ not a ‘something.’ Faith formation is one of the ways our parish community can help one another, especially parents and young people, to know and love God, serve others, and to live the life to which Jesus calls us. This means a lot more than can be read in a book—it is a formation in the Christian way of life. In doing this, we obey the call of Jesus to make disciples of all nations and teach his commands (Mt 28:19-20).
In doing this we help one another to seek true and lasting happiness that only comes from knowing God and walking in his ways:
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” –Ps 119:105
