Faith Formation at Resurrection: Join Us!
Through Faith Formation, we are prepared to grow and support one another in our rich Catholic Faith.
Faith Formation is a lifelong process of investing in one another (the Body of Christ) in faith, challenging and stretching our spiritual muscles to grow and strengthen, and linking arms with the Family of God as we learn to be Disciples of Jesus. Faith Formation is not about what you “get” out of it, it is not a consumable product or an item to “check off the list”.
The Holy Spirit moves in and through the gathered family of God as we listen, share inspirations and feel safe enough to voice our doubts and questions. Relationships/ friendships deepen. Trust happens. Spiritual growth blossoms and matures, leading to appreciation and understanding of the presence of God in our daily lives. This in turn, prompts us from within to share the GOOD NEWS through our actions and our words. Each person brings unique life experience, insights, gifts and wisdom.
YOUR PRESENCE MATTERS.

Children & Youth Faith Formation Core Teams: Our children and youth faith formation ministries thrive with strong adult core team leadership. Our core teams are made up of 4-6 adults for each group who are invested in growing their own faith and building relationships with our community.
All volunteers working with minors must complete a background check and Archdiocesan safe environment training (more information here). In addition, they must follow Resurrection’s Volunteer Social Media Policy.
