Faith Formation

Faith Formation

Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish strives to provide a comprehensive faith formation program that represents the teachings of Jesus Christ. Our goal is to form a community of faith by promoting a Catholic way of life through gospel values, prayer, and commitment to God, our church and our community. We support all parish members in their lifelong process of growing in faith by planning, implementing, communicating and encouraging participation in ongoing opportunities for Catholic education and formation with the ultimate goal of putting people in communion and intimacy with Jesus Christ.
