Faith Formation Commission Meeting Minutes
The Church of St. Patrick follows Whole Community Catechesis. It is based on a directive from the General Directory of Catechesis (GDC) a document called forth at Vatican II. It brings our programs beyond the learning the fundamentals of the faith by:
Refreshing the adults’ knowledge of the faith.
Reinforcing and building upon what is learned each year.
Relating what the adults learn to what the children learn.
Building up the Domestic Church.
Engaging learners of all ages in Social Justice Activities
Providing the opportunity to learn from others of various ages and experiences.
We are continually improving our Faith Formation programs based on feedback from parents and children who participate. Click here to email comments to our Faith Formation Director.

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) - Are you seeking to come into community with the Catholic Church? Do you have a family member of friend who is a baptized Catholic but never received the sacraments of Eucharist and/or Confirmation? Do you know someone who is seeking to learn more about the Catholic Faith? Then the RCIA journey may be the answer to their/your questions about a faith filled life. If you know anyone who has questions or may be interested in the RCIA journey please contact Teresa Neuman, Director of Faith Formation at 651-455-6624 ext. 105 or e-mail at email@example.com
