The Faith Formation Program of St. Andrew Catholic Church strives to fulfill the Mission, as Disciples of Christ, to share the Message of Jesus with others. (Matthew 28:19-20)
As part of the Body of Christ and as part of a life-long, active and participatory process, we are committed to help our faith community and its members of all ages, to grow towards a deeper and pragmatic understanding of our Catholic Christian Faith and towards a greater realization of the Gospel imperative to transform ourselves and our world.
As part of the People of God, we strive to offer all in our faith community, quality and accessible resources, opportunities and programs to help deepen and fulfill individual and collective faith needs which go beyond weekly Mass attendance.
As part of the Temple of the Holy Spirit, we seek to nourish the minds and hearts of the faithful in the wisdom of the Catholic Christian Faith so that who they are and how they live is deeply influenced by what they know.
Our Mission, in accord with Apostolic tradition and Church teaching, adopts the teaching of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in that:
“Catechesis leads people to enter the mystery of Christ, to encounter him, and to discover themselves and the meaning of their lives in him” (National Directory for Catechesis – #19b)
