Religious formation is a lifelong process of maturing in faith and an ongoing growth in understanding and living out the beliefs and values of the Catholic faith.
The Parish School of religion provides catechetical instruction to children in grades 1 — 8, so that they can grow in intimacy with Jesus, be knowledgeable about their faith, and integrate the teachings of the Gospel into their lives. Our philosophy is that parents are the primary educators of their children in the ways fo faith. The Eucharist is central to our Catholic faith and weekly participation in the Mass is critical to our faith formation.

Classes meet on Thursday afternoons for grades 1 -6 from to and on Thursday evenings for grades 7- 8 from — twice a month. Please prayerfully consider how you might be able to pass on your faith to the youth of St. Over a period of time those interested in learning what it means to be a Catholic Christian take part in weekly sessions where scripture, doctrine and tradition are explored and shared.
Conversion and formation are celebrated with special rites, ceremonies and prayers. We have come to the point of very widespread acceptance of one another's baptisms. Does this not also imply a sense of common sharing in the formation which baptism implies? The theme of moral formation, so intimately tied to participation in the liturgy of the eucharist, is through our common baptism shown to be an ecumenically shared reality.
Although there are many readings and interpretations of, a multiplicity of perspectives upon, Christ's presence in history, our common acceptance of baptism shows us that the task of formation in Jesus Christ is inherently one, a task shared by the entire church. The discipleship into which we are initiated at baptism transcends denominational and confessional boundaries. We thereby enter into union with Christ, with each other, and with the church of every time and place.
How, in the midst of our divisions over ministry and the Lord's supper, can this baptismal-moral unity find a more visible form than it has yet achieved? We are not yet able to give it the visible form it inherently demands: unity in eucharistic worship. But may not the one baptism even now find visibility in the catholicity of a community of moral nurture and witnessing: an ecumenical community of costly discipleship? Baptism has to do with the lived reality of the new life in Christ, a community in which the gifts of faith, hope and love are received and practised.
Therefore unity in baptism can have a visible moral form, even if it does not yet have a visible ecclesiastical form. Furthermore, does not the mutual recognition of baptism imply a mutual recognition of members? And if so, does that not imply some mutual sharing of and responsibility for the formation of the people of God? In the formation of our own members are we not responsible for guiding them towards ways that recognize their responsibility for moral solidarity with Christians of other congregations, confessions and communions?
Does not our common responsibility for baptismal formation point towards a responsibility for building up the people of God in every place?

In view of our common recognition of the one baptism, the accompanying formation should include instruction in what this larger, "catholic" formation means. It should make our members aware that the formation they receive leads to a common responsibility, across all lines of ecclesiastical or ethnic difference, for being a people in the world that can make a difference. Baptism is the difference which makes a difference. Ironically, the churches even now have not been able to find any significantly visible expression of this oneness among baptized, and therefore formed-in-Christ people.
