What is Faith Formation?

What Is Faith Formation:

Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing in the name of the Father,

the Son and the Holy Spirit”

The Church's Faith Formation (catechetical) mission aims to help the faithful of all ages grow in both human and Christian maturity, enriching the whole of life with the leaven of the Gospel.  At St. Juliana we follow this mission by offering Faith Formation to all both young and old

 

Becoming Catholic:  interested CLICK HERE

  • Is there a longing in your heart to pursue a personal journey toward becoming Catholic?
  • Has a loved one or friend encouraged you to pursue learning more about our Catholic faith?
  • Do you wonder how your life might change if you were “baptized”?
  • Do you attend mass and wonder how receiving the Eucharist might change your life?
  • As a parishioner of St. Juliana do know ANYONE, a loved one, a friend, or a neighbor who might benefit by furthering their faith journey through the study of our Catholic faith?

If any of these resonate with you as an adult over 18, we encourage you to join our Order of Catholic Initiation of Adults(OCIA) where caring adults mentor adults just like you into our Catholic faith.
