Formation Resources

Thank you for visiting our Formation Resources web page! We are uncertain about the future of Formation programming and events at this time, including K-12, bible studies and RCIA. As a community, we will stay in touch as we continue to respond to the ever-changing recommendations and realities. We are exploring the best way to make our curriculum widely available to you at home. Thank you for your patience as we work to get these organized.

We are always available to address your questions so please do not hesitate to reach out with any concerns. As we continue to pray for your family’s health and well-being, as well as that of our medical professionals, government officials, and the most weak and vulnerable among us, we want to leave you with these words of Jesus from the Gospel of John:
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid. – John 14:27

Ms. Tara and Pete share a preschool lesson about Pentecost. We say Happy Birthday to our church and learn that our church is not just building where we go to Mass. We also learn that on Pentecost, the Holy Spirit came down and filled the believers and they were able to talk in all the languages so people from all countries could understand them.
