Spiritual Formation

  • Recognizing why we were created, understanding our purpose in life and striving toward fulfilling it.

  • Knowing and actively proclaiming the teachings of the Church, through such avenues as prayer, studying the lives of the saints, and Gospel reflections.

  • Living a sacramental life of grace and holiness that is reflective and influenced by a solid Catholic view of the world.
