Spotlight on Jesus: Faith Formation Kick Off September 13, 2023

A gathering of all Faith Formation families from Sunday School through Grade 12 to create community building for families; to hear stories about the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist; to generate excitement about the new year; to introduce Fr. Steffes and our directors; and to pray in front of the Blessed Sacrament as a large group.

 Below you will find some additional resources to dive a little deeper into understanding God's Love for us, growing our relationship with Jesus in the Eucahrist, and responding to his invitation to give ourselves to him the way he gives himself to us.
