About Faith Formation
IHM's Faith Formation is dedicated to supporting the faith journey of all our parishioners. We are committed to sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ in the Catholic tradition through knowledge of the faith, Sacramental Preparation, liturgical celebrations, prayer, involvement in parish life and outreach. We provide formal education for youth until they are confirmed as well as a range of opportunities for adults in order to support the lifelong process of growing closer to God.
Welcome to Immaculate Heart of Mary Faith Formation
Who is Parish Faith Formation for?
All parishioners! All children (regardless of school - meaning all students in public, Catholic, private or homeschool) and all adults (regardless of if you have children at home or not).
“At the heart of catechesis we find, in essence, a Person, the Person of Jesus of Nazareth, the only Son from the Father...full of grace and truth…” (Apostolic Exhortation Catechesi Tradendae of Pope John Paul II).
IHM Faith formation develops and supports a life-long relationship with Jesus Christ in the Catholic Tradition.
We offer programs and opportunities for all ages, from Children's Faith Formation to Middle School and High School Youth Ministry, and Adult Formation and Spiritual Enrichment.
Parish life, prayer and worship, service and outreach all inform our faith and invigorate our discipleship. The call to holiness is universal (Vatican II) and we answer that call as we follow Jesus and grow together in faith and friendship with Him and one another here at Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish.
Children's Faith Formation for Grades 1 - 6 meet on Wednesdays or Thursdays from 6:00 to 7:30 pm.
Faith Formation is a lifetime journey that continues to enrich, nourish and guide us, not just for Sacramental preparation, but for growth in our life of faith, to follow Jesus and his teachings.
Our first through sixth grade uses the RCL Benziger, Be My Disciples.
