What is Faith Formation?

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

 

Become Catholic

Are you coming to church with family or friends but are not yet Catholic?

 

Have you ever wondered if your faith journey would benefit from studying to Become Catholic? 

 

Do you know a friend, loved one, or neighbor struggling with their faith journey who’s asked you how to become more in touch with faith?

 

On September 14th, we will begin sessions for any interested adults over 18 who are curious, interested, or committed to moving forward on their faith journey. We will talk about our parish process for initiating adults into the Catholic Faith (Called Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults or RCIA).

 

Our sessions will begin at 6:00 and will conclude by 7:00 pm.  All attendees will be invited to participate in our parish Bible Study from 7pm till 8pm.  All you need to attend is a desire to listen to attend.

 

If you are interested or if you’d like to invite a friend, loved one, or neighbor, please do and let them know you would be happy to attend with them so they feel welcome.

 

Again, these sessions will begin Thursday, 9/14 from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm in the Seven Holy Founders room.  All you need is the desire and God will do the rest.  We stand ready to be of assistance in your faith journey.

2023- 2024 NOW OPEN

Families with children in grades K-5 We seek to engage the entire family in our Catholic faith using resources from Faith and Family Catholic Life Ministries providing Faith Formation and Sacramental Preparation for Eucharist, Reconciliation, and Baptism.  Sacramental Preparation is a two-year process beginning as early as 1st grade.  Our resources equip parents as the primary faith educators, to share faith with their family.  The lessons are simple, interactive, and engaging as the family works together. Lessons are done at home around your family's timetable. We provide a schedule to keep everyone on target.  Our parents rave over the faith learning, simplicity, and interactivity as the entire family works together. Students eagerly engage in the lessons ask for more.  Additionally we gather all our families once a month on Sunday's after the 11am mass for an interactive family session working on a seasonal themes.  For additional questions please contact the Faith Formation Team. Sessions begin Sunday August 13th with kickoff at Noon in the parish center. Be sure to register! We look forward to your family joining us!
