LIFE LONG FAITH FORMATION

Faith formation for children and adults is the practice of exploring, strengthening and developing our belief in God and the way of leading our lives here on earth. The particular way that we practice our faith tells us that we are Catholic. Our faith should never reach final completion, but should always be in a process of rejuvenation and growth.

Here at St.Elizabeth’s, we have so many programs and opportunities directed at different segments of our community for you and your loved ones to grow in faith – so many ways to learn the “matters of faith” in order to “find a faith that matters.” You, and your family, are invited to join with us as a Parish family, in growing closer to Christ and to one another. Explore the tab below to find where everyone can find a place to grow!.
