Faith Formation Ministries

Becoming Catholic

You may have a family member or friend who is Catholic. You may be dating, engaged or married to a Catholic. You may be unbaptized or baptized in another Christian tradition. You may have been baptized a Catholic, but never received the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist. Throughout the year, many come forward seeking to learn about the Catholic faith.

Children’s Faith Formation/Sacramental Preparation

The Children’s Faith Formation program exists to provide sacramental preparation for First Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and Confirmation as well as ongoing faith formation for children of St. Matthew’s parishioners ages 6-18 who have received these sacraments. In support of parents who are the first teachers of their children, the program strives to communicate the person and message of Jesus Christ in the context of the beliefs and practices of the Roman Catholic Church.

Faith Formation Consortium

The Faith Formation Consortium unites representatives from the many and various ministries of our parish concerned with Christian education and spiritual enrichment. The Consortium’s mission is to promote communication, sharing, evaluation, support, and planning for continual improvement and renewal.
