Christian Formation


Christian Formation at St. Mary's is a starting point for a lifelong journey to become a follower of Jesus Christ. If we are going to become mature in Christ in the words of St. Paul, we must enter the process of spiritual formation.  Christian formation is a process that sharpens our awareness of God and helps us to be more attentive to imitating the ways of Jesus. It is through our vacation bible schools, listening sessions, storytelling, retreats, book discussions and bible study that we enter a pilgrimage with a clear destination - the kingdom of God.
