"With God’s help, to prepare, guide and support each person throughout their spiritual journey; to increase and strengthen the whole body of Christ; and to equip the individual to reflect the light of Christ."
Christian Formation at St. Michael’s is an integral part of our parish life. We have a rich program full of opportunities for spiritual formation and growth for children (aged 4-11 years), youth (aged 12-18 years) and adults (aged 19 and up), and you are invited to participate in the development and leadership of these activities.
Your time, talents and ideas are welcome! We, as community of faith, are all benefactors of the spiritual fruits from our spiritual labors – please contact any of the folks above and get involved in the continuing spiritual development among our parishioners.
