Faith Formation

The Faith Formation Office 

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 28:19-20  

The Faith Formation programs at St. Mary of the Lake Church foster a personal relationship with God. These programs foster a true growth in faith for all parishioners through an understanding and experience of the Catholic faith and moral life, and living out of the sacramental and apostolic life of the church and inviting all to deepen their experience of prayer and worship in the Roman Catholic tradition.

Our Goals 

• To offer opportunities to have parishioners get to know one another and to make the church a center of family life through family and topic-centered activities.

• To enable everyone to nourish his/her own personal relationship with God through prayer, study, sacred scripture, and frequent participation in the sacraments of Eucharist and reconciliation.

• To offer opportunities for all parishioners to recognize that the Eucharistic and its liturgy is the center, source, summit of who we are as Catholic Christians.
• To encourage parishioners of all ages, to grow toward full and active participation in the life and mission of the Church. The Faith Formation is a lifelong process.

• To offer opportunities of formation to instruct and renew all parishioners in the fundamental values and doctrines of our faith.

• To help each person develop through prayer, study, and participation in the liturgical and active life of the Church, a response to their baptismal call to make the kingdom of God present here and now in the world.

• All children and youth of St. Mary of the Lake Church can be involved in Faith Formation. We support the parents, godparents, and/or grandparents who see that our young parishioners are formed in the faith and assist them in their faith journey. We are here to stand beside you and offer to you and your family our help as you continue in your faith.
The Faith Formation program runs from September through April.
