Church of Nativity of Blessed Virgin Mary

Faith Formation

Our parish emphasizes faith formation as a life-long journey developing a relationship with Jesus.  At the heart is the Eucharist which is celebrated on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.

We encourage adult members to continue to grow in their understanding of God through our rich Roman Catholic  tradition and Holy Scripture.  To this end, we also offer special programming with discussions that we hope you will engage in.  We look to the adults as examples of great stewards of the church.  We encourage everyone to find a ministry they can participate in, or try a few, to help you develop your faith.  Our hope is that parents will want to be an example and teach their children by coming to Mass each week and participating in a ministry(ies) as much as possible.

We offer faith formation classes during the school year for grade levels K-7.   These are organized by the Faith Formation Coordinator, Megan Altenritter.

We use the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies for our curriculum. Here is the link to their website: .  This is so the families can access all of the supplementary material, which is particularly helpful if they happen to miss a class or have a home session. The link to the USCCB daily readings may also be useful for home sessions, preparing ahead for Mass, or missed classes:
