Part of the concept of personal growth at St. Mary’s is the assumption that we not only need to learn “facts” about our faith, as in “school.”
We also need to think about applying the facts of the biblical and traditional messages to our lives, to use these facts to “form” ourselves as Christians. Thus the Christian Formation program includes service opportunities, such as Habitat for Humanity and Haitian mission trips; study and retreat occasions, such as Discovery Weekends, Cursillo, Vocare, and Happening; and the many different kinds of and times for worship provided in the parish.
These experiences provide insights and perspectives to the knowledge and discussions of the various classes available.
