Welcome to Religious Formation Ministry!
"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.

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:

"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
