 ST. MICHAEL’S MISSION STATEMENT

   We are a Christian community called together to grow in faith and to celebrate God’s love for us in the Mass and Sacraments of the Catholic Church, through the gospel message and our common worship.  We are challenged to give Christian witness by our lives and service to others.

 

 

  

 

GOAL

     The goal of St. Michael/St. Anthony’s Faith Formation Program is to provide an atmosphere that supports families as they develop a relationship to God and the Church community. As Catechists, parents, and students, we celebrate, learn and share our faith in God. Through our actions and with the direction of the Spirit we witness to the Gospel and its command to "Go into the whole world and proclaim the Gospel…"

Volunteer Opportunities: Our Youth Faith Formation (Religious Education) program is completely run by our volunteer teachers.  Without their generous help we would be unable to offer these vital services to our young people. All volunteers are greatly appreciated! Each volunteer has undergo background checks, take part in an Abuse- Awareness Training Seminar, and sign an Oath of Fidelity to the Catholic Church before they can teach in our religious education. Parents are the primary religious educators of their children. Parents are expected to attend Mass each weekend with their child. Children do as they see; not as they are told. Know that your continued interest, involvement and prayers do influence your child’s perception of what the Christian life is all about.


The objective of our religious education program is not only to deepen one’s knowledge about the Catholic Faith, but to inspire our students to live their lives a certain way. In particular, the ultimate aim is to encourage our students to PRACTICE their faith. Jesus tells his disciples very clearly in the gospel, “If you love me, you will keep my commandments” (John 14:15). The third commandment obliges us to keep the Christian Sabbath day holy. This means that parents and students are REQUIRED to attend Sunday Mass every week; only serious illness or an inability to be physically present where Mass is being celebrated serve as adequate excuses. Since God gives us 168 hours every week, certainly we can give one hour in return. This is extremely important as it serves as an example and encourages our children to practice their faith and to grow into adults with a mature Catholic faith.


Classes start at 6:15 on Wednesday, September 16th.  There will be a brief meeting with the parents/guardians, introduce the teachers and discuss the structure of the program, curriculum, and “What I learned sheet”, policies.

We look forward a wonderful year!  God bless!
