We value Christian Formation at All Saints’, understanding it to be an important component in the spritual growth of our youngest members up to our more seasoned members.
In the 1990’s we made the commitment to offer Catechesis of the Good Shepherd for our children 3 years old through 6th grade. Catechesis is not a program but rather a way of experiencing God with children, it can only be transmitted from heart to heart and from spirit to spirit. Our time with them on Sunday mornings is spent helping them experience and love God and more foundationally, how much they are loved by God.
Helping our older youth continue to grow in their spiritual life takes shape in the Sunday morning discussions they have each week about current events and applying biblical principles to what is relevant to them today.
Our adults continue exploring their faith formation with classes on Sunday mornings. One class delves into the scriptures readings for that Sunday, while the other class explores short-term topical based discussions.
