Faith Formation Programs

The goal of our faith formation programs is to deepen our relationship with Christ and His Church, for Life IS Christ, and “‘Christ Lives in Me’ is the singular confession of the Christian who has been led by God’s grace and who trusts, at the deepest level of being, that true life comes only through the redemptive sacrifice of Jesus Christ” (National Directory for Catechesis, p. 183-184).

To achieve this goal, St. Anselm Church is committed to offering a variety of programs and opportunities designed to help individuals explore their relationship with God and their role in the Church. It is one thing to know your faith. It is something much deeper to have a personal relationship with the living God. It is only through our being formed and informed in our Catholic faith that we can be transformed by our relationship with Him.

The programs listed below are formal and ongoing. Be sure to check under Current News for special faith formation programs such as retreats, workshops, seminars, and days of recollection that may be offered periodically throughout the year.
