The goal of the Education and Formation Commission is to foster continued faith development in the members of our parish at all stages of life. We offer this service through programs, workshops and committees that enhance the Spirit-gifts of knowledge, wisdom and understanding.  The committee hopes to serve as a catalyst for creativity and service providers for our Pastor, Religious Education Director and anyone associated with gospel overtures of evangelization for our parish community. 

Meetings are held once a month for nine months of the year with additional ad hoc committee meetings as needed. New members are approved by the members of the Commission and ratified by the Parish Council. Members should be prepared to assist on events and projects agreed to by the Commission.
