Parish Faith Formation

FF 2.jpg

Encountering Christ Together

OUR VISION FOR FAITH FORMATION

Our mission is to follow the call of the Church and provide opportunities for you to encounter Christ and grow in holiness. Our Parish Faith Formation gives each of us the tools we need to grow in relationship with God and bring that love to the community. All are welcome to participate.

PARISH FAITH FORMATION SESSIONS

We invite you, and the entire parish, to join us weekly on Thursdays from 5:30pm-6:30pm in Ballard Hall for parish faith formation sessions. 

Here is a glimpse of some of the topics you can expect to explore this year!

  • Why be Catholic when I can just be "religious" or "spiritual"?

  • Is it reasonable to believe in God in today's scientific culture?

  • What is the purpose of our lives?

  • How do we know today what Jesus really said and taught over 2000 years ago?

  • Where does the Catholic Mass come from and why is it important?

  • How do we pray and how does God lovingly pursue us in our prayer?

  • How can married couples image the love of God to their children?

  • Keeping yourself and your family safe on today's technology

  • And much more!

  • Throughout the year we will invite guest speakers, in addition to our Faith Formation staff, who will lead us in the exploration of these topics!

All are invited to these Parish Faith Formation sessions in addition to our other formation offerings including Financial Peace University, The Catholic Biblical School and Dwell: Evenings of Praise and Adoration. 

FAITH FORMATION AS A FAMILY

Families with children in grades 1-6 are invited to a weekly session from 5:30pm-6:30pm. All adults in the parish are welcome to attend a faith formation presentation on various topics each week during this time in Ballard Hall. The children will attend their education classes during this time. 

Parents with children taking faith formation classes are required to attend every session on the first Thursday of the month.

SACRAMENTS OF INITIATION

Baptism

Parents who wish to have their child baptized must be a registered, contributing member for at least 6 months. In the rite of Baptism, parents are called to be the first and best teachers of their children in the ways of the faith. 

The parish is only able to attest to this by the ongoing participation and contribution of parents. 

A baptismal preparation class is required prior to the baptism. Call the parish office at 303-388-1643 for more information and to register for the class.

Restored Order

In the Archdiocese of Denver parishes are in the process of the restored order for the Sacraments of Initation. We begin this process by lowering the age for the reception of Confirmation and concluding the reception of the Initiation sacraments with Holy Eucharist. Further information will be forthcoming on how this will affect our parish. For more information about the restored order please click here.

Classes are taught September - May and students receive the sacrament of Reconciliation prior to the reception of First Holy Communion. Please call the parish office for more information and to register for our Family Faith Formation program
