Formation is a life-long discipleship! Formation is a continuing journey with God. Through Formation we can grow into a stewardship life; a deeper life that loves God, as He loves us. Such formation is a personal challenge as it involves the education of the mind and conversion of heart. Reflect on what ideas you might have to strengthen your own formation-take the initiative to join a parish ministry that best suits your interests or talents as you develop your personal relationship with God. We are a light of each other!

When you will lead a life worthy of the Lord And pleasing to Him in every way.  You will multiply good works of every sort And grow in the knowledge of God.”  Colossians 1:10

WE ARE A LIGHT FOR EACH OTHER!
