Welcome to Religious Formation Ministry!
Meet our NEW YOUTH MINISTER
"Jesus said to them, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age." ~Matthew 28:18k-19-20
At St. Christopher parish, we are committed to our Church Mission of Evangelization.
Within our formation ministry, our goal is to "Evangelize" rather than "sacramentalize." With the families as our partners, we are working towards whole family catechesis. That is, we reach out to the whole parish family with opportunities for prayer, worship, learning, and sharing the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ.

JUNIOR HIGH MINISTRY
Jesus is truly the focus of Junior High ministry. In Junior High ministry we begin integrating Jesus into our lives 24/7. How do we do that? What does Jesus have to do with my everyday challenges, joys, fears, worries?
With JESUS 24/7 we look at how our music, habits, entertainment, activities, attitudes, the world around us, either welcomes, glorifies or rejects Jesus.
We aim to provide the Junior high student the spiritual armor they will need as they prepare for high school, increased peer pressure and the influences which tempt them away from the truth of Jesus and our faith tradition
Junior High Ministry challenges the students to seek Scripture in order that their faith has meaning in their everyday lives. In the 8th grade, students are prepared to enter Confirmation formation once they reach 9th grade.

Have you ever felt a calling to lead others to our faith but didn't know quite how to go about it?
Perhaps God is calling you to serve in our Religious Formation Ministry!
We are inviting you to spend some time and reflect upon what God may have in store for you in Religious Formation.
Catechists and volunteers are needed in all levels.
If you have never been a catechist before, do not be afraid! It is said that God does not call the qualified; He qualifies the called! In other words, we will assist in your training. We also need assistants in and out of the classroom for all levels.
Please consider giving us a call to discuss where God may be calling you to serve:

All adult volunteers must be VIRTUS trained or be willing to undergo VIRTUS training.
"Behold, I stand at the door and knock...when you hear my voice, open the door and and I will come in to sup with you..." Rev. 3:20
Do you know when Jesus is knocking on YOUR DOOR? What would you say to him when you opened the door?
