Covid-19 and Faith Formation: Will there be Faith Formation at St. Michael Catholic Church this fall? The short answer is yes we plan to move ahead with LIFT Family Formation, Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, 1st Communion Classes, Impact for 8th Grade Parents, and the Fall Bible Study. The longer answer is that all of these formation opportunities will have to adapt to the limitations placed upon us by the Covid-19 pandemic. We expect to receive clear Covid-19 safety guidelines from the Archdiocese for Faith Formation activities in parishes by mid-August. Once we receive those guidelines we will announce what St. Michael Faith Formation events will look like this fall. Thank you for your patience as we strive to provide safe, yet meaningful Faith Formation for our parish community.
Peace and Blessings from Bob & Andrea
Online Registration For Impact Is Now Open
Impact is a ministry for St. Michael parents who currently have a teen in the 8th grade Discipleship Group Ministry. It is offered as an alternative to our LIFT Family Formation program (families with a teen in Breakaway must choose to participate in LIFT or Impact). Impact gatherings focus on topics related to the challenges parents face today in helping their teen to become a fully intentional disciple of Jesus Christ. Impact sessions are held on three different Wednesday evenings during the school year at St. Michael Catholic Church from 6:45-8:15 p.m. Impact gatherings are on the same evenings as 8th Grade Discipleship Group nights.
The 2020-2021 Impact dates are: October 28, January 20, and March 24.
