Faith Formation

WELCOME

The Faith Formation Office supports the religious education and sacramental preparation needs of all our parishioners.

Sponsor Youth Discernment!

This July, youth from our metro area will gather at the University of Portland for the annual Ignite Your Torch retreat. We understand that for some families the registration fee can be a hardship, especially if multiple children attend from one family. Please consider providing a donation to help fund our teens so they discern their vocation! All donations will need to be received at our office by Friday, July 1st.

For more information, contact our Pastoral Assistant of Faith Formation, Amy Parent.

Join fellow teens July 14th-17th, from across the Northwest at the annual summer gathering for vocation discernment, Ignite Your Torch!

IGNITE YOUR TORCH is a high school Catholic youth conference in which “on fire” religious seek to Ignite the faith of teens through engaging talks, small group discussion, workshops as well as personal interaction at recreation, meals and just hanging out. It is an opportunity to make new friendships in Christ, to receive the sacraments, to meet and talk to young priests and religious, and to worship, pray, learn, and recreate together.
