Lifelong Process for children and adults
Many people think of Christian Formation as a religious education program for children and youth. But it’s more than that. Christian Formation is a lifelong process aimed at personal conversion and growth in faith. So we have adult programs too. The sidebar shows the many aspects of Christian Formation here at St. Francis Borgia parish.
Why Christian Formation Is important for your children
Children are very spiritual people and have a real desire to know about God and the things of God. As baptized Catholics it is important for our young people to learn what it means to live the life of a Christian in the context of our Catholic tradition. By coming together with their peers to learn about their faith, they are also experiencing community which is such a large part of our Catholic tradition. This can be done through the parish Christian Formation program, or through enrollment in Catholic school.
