Youth & Children
Faith formation with children and youth grows out of our Baptismal Covenant. If we want our people to have faith in Jesus, our first commitment is to deepen the faith of their parents, grandparents, and caring adults – primary influences of their faith.
The content of our faith matters. What is the faith you hope to share?
