Faith Formation

The purpose of the Faith Formation Committee is to implement the goal of the Pastoral Plan for Faith Formation, which is to develop a culture of faith within our parish that encompasses all generations to build up the Church. We have a very vibrant Committee comprised of parishioners whose faith is an integral part of their daily lives. We meet every other month on a Thursday evening. We welcome new members of all ages to this Committee, to help us complete this most important task here at Holy Family. If you would like to join us on the Faith Formation Committee, please contact John Peterson,
