“Do not be afraid of holiness…of letting yourself be loved and purified by God. … Let us allow God’s holiness be transmitted to us. Every Christian is called to holiness; and holiness does not consist, first and foremost, in doing extraordinary things, but rather in letting God act. It is the encounter between our weakness and the strength of His grace”.

Pope Francis, General Audience 2 Oct., 2013

We believe that Faith Formation is lifelong and is a process of conversion.  Our faith can only get stronger when we nurture it and cherish it, and it is through this ministry that we respond.   This ministry is a  journey of discipleship that provides the participants with opportunities to deepen their own faith through activities including Bible study, retreats, and Theological presentations.  People from all parishes are welcome because to be Catholic is to be universal, we all grow from these journeys.  If you have any questions you can contact the parish offices or fill out the contact information below and someone will respond.




Our most recent Faith Enrichment Study from the Adult Faith Formation Program will begin Wednesday, September 18th, 2019 and is offered in two sessions.  Mornings at 10:00 am or Evenings at 7:00 pm.  The Study from Ascension Press is Romans: The Gospel of Salvation.  Please watch the video below to get a small introduction into the study and please join us September 18th!


Newcomer’s can access St. Rita’s room (in the Lower Church) where the study takes place, by an entrance on 115th Street, next to the rectory and right near the alleyway.  Our South parking lot is across the street.  Just follow the hall to the elevator and head down.
