Faith formation is a lifelong journey. With each new day and new season we come to know God more intimately through the unfolding of our lives. The priests and staff of St. Mary's Church are here to accompany and support you on this journey. We hope you will participate in one of our faith formation programs, which we offer for children, teens, and adults, and for people in all states of life. Didn't find what you're looking for? Please be in touch with our Director of Religious Education, Lacy Prebula, to talk about how we can better serve you and the needs of the parish.
Faith is not a private matter, a completely individualistic notion or a personal opinion: it comes from hearing, and it is meant to find expression in words and to be proclaimed. For "how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without a preacher?" (Rom 10:14). Faith becomes operative in the Christian on the basis of the gift received, the love which attracts our hearts to Christ (cf. Gal 5:6), and enables us to become part of the Church’s great pilgrimage through history until the end of the world. For those who have been transformed in this way, a new way of seeing opens up, faith becomes light for their eyes.
