All Catholics are called not only to learn about their faith (Faith Formation that brings Jesus more deeply into our lives) and exercise our faith (in the many ways we Worship God in liturgy) but also to take that faith into action, supporting one another and the wider world through prayer, social gatherings, service work and all the other ways we Witness on behalf of Jesus and the Church.

In every week's parish bulletin Page 3 is the Faith Formation Page that provides our church's daily Mass Intentions (those for whom we are invited to pray in a special way that day), the current prayer list (those for whom we are invited to pray due to illness or recent death), as well as an article provided by our Director of Religious Education to help you grow in faith.
