“We are called to Know God, to Love God, and to Serve God by our words and actions.”
Faith Formation is not only in the classroom but in everyday living.
St. John the Baptist Parish understands that it is the Church’s mission to help others grow and mature in their Catholic faith by providing the tools needed to live a faith-filled life. As parents, you are your child’s primary educators in Faith Formation. St. John the Baptist Parish is here to be your support system. We are committed to working with our families to help their children grow in a fuller understanding of this faith and, most importantly, to develop a real relationship between God the Father, Jesus the Son, the Holy Spirit, and themselves.
Faith formation is offered in many different ways throughout your child’s life. From religious education classes to sacramental preparation; from youth retreats to speakers, and so much more.
Families are encouraged to visit this site often to stay up to date on the programs, information, calendars, meeting schedules, registration for our programs, activities, and events.
Thank you for allowing us to share in the faith formation of your child.
Weather Cancellation for all Religious Education, Sacramental Preparation and Youth Ministry Events
If Edgar school is closed for the day or dismissed early, our classes and programs are automatically cancelled.
If deteriorating weather conditions make driving hazardous later in the day, classes and programs may be cancelled. The decision, in this case, will be made by 2:30 pm. Information will be made public through an announcement at school and our web page.
In all cases, feel free to call the office if you are unsure.
Serve God by our Words and Actions:
Volunteers are Always Needed!
Have you ever thought about helping children or teens grow in their understanding of the Catholic faith? Would you like to make a difference in the lives of young people?
God asks each of us to use our talents to help others grow in a deeper relationship with Him. Helping a child learn what that means through faith formation, sacramental preparation, and youth ministry events is a gift both given and received.
The programs at St. John the Baptist Parish are done by volunteers. Click here to go to the volunteer tab under Faith Formation (CCD) to find out all of the different ways to volunteer. Help us build a strong Catholic community, now and into the future.
