Welcome to the Faith Formation web page of Saint Maurice Church. The Faith Formation Program is open to students in Kindergarten through Grade 8.

Faith formation is catechesis (teaching the faith) which aims to deepen and enrich people’s contact with Jesus Christ through educational and enrichment opportunities. Designed to touch the intellect as well as the heart, the Faith Formation program helps people live and experience a more Christ-centered life. We promote the following six tasks of catechesis (ways of learning about the Catholic faith):

Knowledge of the Faith

Liturgical Education

Moral Formation

Individual and Communal Prayer

Discipleship in Community

Missionary Activity

With these six tasks of catechesis, people of all ages, especially children, can broaden their understanding of what it means to be a Catholic Christian and deepen their relationship to Jesus Christ, our Lord, and to his church. Faith Formation is a lifelong activity!! Our faith formation sessions are based on Scripture (Word), Prayer (both liturgical and personal), Action (service within and outside our church), and Community (fellowship within our small groups and with the larger parish community). We use opportunities within our parish community to bring families together in order to enhance our learning experience and bring about a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is offered for adults who wish to learn more about the Catholic faith and become an active, participating member of the Catholic Church. For information on the RCIA and the RCIA process contact the Parish Office.
