Love God, Love Others, Make Disciples

Faith Formation

Faith Formation
Faith formation is catechesis (teaching the faith) which aims to deepen people’s contact with Jesus Christ via educational and enrichment opportunities. Designed to touch the intellect as well as the heart, these programs help people live and experience a more Christ-centered life. In order to walk this path authentically and properly, it is necessary to understand how to have a relationship with God. We need to know, not only how to live, but what it means to live the fullest gift of life God has granted to us.
At the Church of Nativity, we offer faith formation for young children (PreK-K), school-age children (1st-8th), teens, and adults. The purpose of faith formation is to give direction to our life. In doing so we are better able to share with others, to evangelize, and understand our Catholic Faith.
