Faith Formation Programs
St. Mary’s Parish community strives to serve all ages, inviting parishioners in every season of life to commit to growing in spirit and faith through our formation programs.
The Religious Education Program is offered to all young people in grades Pre-K to 6. This program is meant to supplement the religious formation already happening in the home. Parents are the first and foremost educators of their children. As a community of the faithful, we at St. Mary’s, pledge to provide instruction in the Catholic Faith and encourage participation in the weekend Masses.
St Mary’s Youth Ministry empowers young people to live as disciples of Christ in our world today and to foster their total personal and spiritual growth.
Are you eager to grow more intimate with Jesus and his teachings? Searching for good spiritual friends who pray together?
You’re invited to the Small Group Bible Study!
Bible Study will resume in June 12th, 2023 at 10:30 am in the parish hall. All are welcome!
Please feel free to join others and deepen your faith and knowledge about the passion Jesus suffered for our salvation.
It will touch your minds and hearts. There is no cost for this bible study and everyone is welcome!

"And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. "
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is for un-baptized adults, those who have been baptized in another faith tradition, as well as for adults who have been baptized Catholic and have not received the sacraments of Eucharist and/or Confirmation.
Interested in RCIA or Adult Confirmation?
“Our profession of faith begins with God, for God is the First and the Last, the beginning and the end of everything. The Credo begins with God the Father, for the Father is the first divine person of the Most Holy Trinity; our Creed begins with the creation of heaven and earth, for creation is the beginning and the foundation of all God’s works.”
