Faith Formation


This ministry is for the very young members of our community. Children range in age from about three to ten. The children are presented materials about the readings of the day through activities, songs, and instruction. They meet on Sunday mornings during the 10:30 Mass throughout the school year.


R.C.I.A is the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. This is a liturgical/catechetical process designed to prepare adults for initiation into the faith community and for the celebration of the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist. Parish members are needed to help in several ministries of R.C.I.A. If you are interested in joining the Catholic Church or helping in the R.C.I.A ministry, please call St. Mary Rectory: 419-668-2005 or St. Anthony Rectory: 419-499-4274
