Faith Formation & Pastoral Services Center
The Faith Formation Center, serving both St. John and St. Joseph Parishes, provides weekly religious education classes for children through high school, monthly whole church formation events and regular adult formation, as well as sacramental formation for the children of the parishes. The Center also ministers to adults wishing to come into full communion with the Catholic Church through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RICA) and inactive Catholics wishing to return to full participation in the Church through the Catholics Returning Home. Instruction for parents of infants to be baptized is offered through the center as is assistance to the pastors in the pre-marriage inventory for couples intending to be married. The Faith Formation Center supports ministry to the home-bound and nursing home residents and sponsors a grief support group which meets monthly.
