The Church Involvement
Faith Formation assists parents and the godparents in their responsibility to bring up their child within the Catholic Faith. The Catechists assist parents by organizing the faith formation classes and service activities that allow students to grow closer to Jesus Christ. Our faith formation classes are more than just education in another subject; it’s a practice in our daily life. The Classes aim in putting the student in a relationship with Jesus Christ.
