What is Christian Formation?

Our Christian Formation program is built based on the St. Alphonsus Mission Statement and the Four Pillars of the Catholic Faith...

According to the St. Alphonsus Parish Mission Statement, we strive to provide opportunities for lifelong Christian education, emphasizing justice-filled service based on Scriptures and our lived tradition.

Four Pillars of the Catholic Faith:

The profession of Faith - what Catholics believe

The celebration of the Christian Mystery - how Catholics worship

Life in Christ - how Catholics live

Christian prayer - how Catholics pray


We designed this program using the resources and models of:

The spiral curriculum of the Blest Are We series in Kindergarten through Eighth grade

The Matthew Kelly series in Ninth, Tenth and Eleventh grades

Mass participation, bible basics, the receiving of the sacraments, outreach opportunities, pilgrimages, inter-grade activities, mission and parish work and community collaborations
