Christian Faith Formation
Faith Formation fosters ongoing lifelong learning and has the following tasks: promote knowledge of the faith; understanding the meaning of liturgical and sacramental life; promote moral formation in Christ; teach Christians how to pray; foster a life of service in community; and cultivate an evangelizing and missionary spirit. Our goal at St. John Neumann is to nurture and enliven a mature faith in which we live in discipleship with Christ and his Church, and which we live out in our families, in the workplace, in the community and in the world. We offer intergenerational activities to engage the whole family and we also encourage parental involvement in all aspects of our parish school of religion.
Our approach is to create a faith formation network that addresses the diverse tasks & situations, spiritual, religious & cultural needs, & interests of adults in the church by offering a variety of content topics & learning activities out of which adults can develop their own personalized learning pathway. We utilize a variety of learning models to address this, incorporating both face-to-face, interactive learning activities & virtual, online learning activities.
