Faith Formation Program Mission Statement

 

“Go into all the world; and preach the Gospel to the whole creation." 

Mark 16:15

 

The Faith Formation Program  of St. John Neumann provides opportunities for children and adults to grow in their knowledge of God and the Catholic Faith, prepare for and celebrate the sacraments and liturgy of the Church and proclaim the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.  We seek to inspire the members of our community to live Christian moral and spiritual lives that are dedicated to the service of God and others.

“Catechesis is a responsibility of the entire Christian community.  Christian initiation, indeed “should not be the work of catechists and priests alone, but of the whole community of the faithful.”  Continuing education in the faith is a question which concerns the whole community; catechesis, therefore is an educational activity which arises from the particular responsibility of every member of the community, in a rich context of relationships, so that catechumens and those being catechized are actively incorporated in the life of the community.”
