We are always forming who we become as people of faith and we are continually forming people of every age and who they are becoming as people of faith. Formation speaks to the formal, informal, and non-formal learning we engage in throughout each day.
Prayer, conversation, books, gaining knowledge from a teacher, experiences, encounters with others, reading, watching, listening, etc. are all thing that happens along the formation continuum.
Following are highlights from our Sunday Morning Formation Opportunities. Contact Fr. Chris Cole for more information about formation and questions about confirmation.
