Faith Formation Commission
The members of the Faith Formation Commission set a common direction for all areas of Faith Formation, by working closely with the Pastoral Associates for Faith Formation and Youth Ministry. They ensure that opportunities are provided for parishioners to grow in their faith and to deepen their relationship with God.
