Mission Statement: The St. Gabriel Faith Formation Program is dedicated to providing its parishioners with a dynamic learning environment rich in faith formation, Catholic Doctrine and Religious Celebrations.
Philosophy: The St. Gabriel Faith Formation Program in cooperation with its parishioners strives to provide religious education for Pre K-Adults. We seek to create an environment where all Christians have the opportunity for spiritual growth, for gaining an understanding for the knowledge of the Catholic faith and for deepening a respect for the uniqueness of others. We believe that by integrating sound catechesis, use of Catholic doctrine (i.e., CCC, encyclicals, etc.) and religious celebrations prepared to embody Catholic values into everyday life, to serve the total human community, and to help meet the human needs of our time.
The primary goals of the St. Gabriel Faith Formation Program:
- To create a Catholic atmosphere where all parishioners have the opportunity to foster and experience a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and his bride – The Catholic Church.
- To evangelize and assist the participants in understanding, appreciating, and living the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.
- To sensitize our participants in the importance of sharing in responsibility for helping to alleviate the global, social, and economic problems of our time.
- To emphasize the community aspects of family and parish life.
