About Faith Formation & Religious Education:

Mission Statement:  Our mission through the Faith Formation/Religious Education programs is to assist parishioners in building an intimate relationship with Christ, developing a strong Christian community here at Holy Trinity and the Mystical Body of Christ.  Through faith formation, we seek to offer a greater understanding of liturgy, sacraments, and scripture.

Drawing on Ignatian spirituality and tradition, we hope to: 
provide a foundation for a life-long education of the whole person and to 

encourage parishioners to actively live out their faith through service, and
to serve as men and women with and for others.
We aim to enrich the service experience by providing opportunities for reflection where one may challenge preconceived notions and experience a deeper growth.

For Reflection:
"Catechesis seeks to move people to live justly, mercifully and peacefully as individuals, to act as the leaven of the Gospel in family, school, work, social and civic life and to work for the appropriate social change."
