Hello Parish Families,
We are so excited that you are seeking to deepen your faith for your child and your family. Faith formation can sound like a technical term, but in a single line we could say faith formation is simply: equipping people to live as disciples of Jesus. That is our hope at St. Margaret Mary’s. We hope to join you on your journey of becoming a disciple of Jesus. This means we are excited to help you:
- Fall in love with Jesus.
- Live as disciples of Jesus at home, at work, and in the community.
- Develop an understanding of the Bible and the Catholic faith tradition.
- Deepen your spiritual life and practices.
- Engage in service and mission to the world.
- Participate in the life and ministries of our faith community.
During this unique time, we hope to communicate clearly with you any changes concerning Covid and the faith formation program, including Confirmation. It is most likely that our program this year will look a bit different from last. As of now, the program will be a combination of both online and in person learning. Rest assured, we know the importance of our loved ones, so every decision will have the safety of our families as our top priority. As a result we are currently working to limit the size of every class room. We have learned that a small class size will be very important for the safety of our children. We will also provide online learning material for those that are not comfortable meeting in person. Finally, we will be offering a combination of online learning and in-person gatherings so everyone has an option they feel comfortable with. These details will all be explained in mid August. Thank you for your patience during these trying times and many blessing to you and your family.
