Faith Formation

Want to follow Jesus? Join St. Philip Neri-Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church for the celebration of Mass and the sacraments. Become a parishioner today!

Catechesis is a responsibility of the entire Christian community. Faith formation has never been more important.

This should not be the work of catechists and priests alone, but of the whole community of the faithful. The Christian community follows the development of catechetical processes, for children, young people and adults, as a duty that involves and binds it directly. (GDC 220)

A fully Christian community can exist only when a systematic catechesis of all its members takes place and when an effective and well developed catechesis of adults is regarded as the central task of the catechetical enterprise. (ACCC, no. 25)

Totus Tuus

Totus Tuus is a summer Catholic youth program dedicated to sharing the Gospel and promoting the Catholic Faith through evangelization, catechesis, Christian witness, and Eucharistic worship. Our week-long Parish Summer Catechetical Program assists parents and parishes in the evangelizing and catechizing of their youth by supplementing the work they are currently doing. It is a fantastic way to continue faith formation for the youth, even during the months of summer!

The methodology, structure, content, and enthusiasm of Totus Tuus are concerned not only with teaching the Faith, but also igniting the hearts of the team members and the young people they encounter. The result has been the formation of young adults who continue to dedicate themselves to the Church’s mission of evangelization along with many vocations to the priesthood and religious life.


MARK YOUR CALENDARS

Stubenville 2024

During Lent, we tend to focus on prayer, fasting, and penance. While these are important, let’s set these aside for a moment and consider the REAL challenge of Lent: the conversion of souls. Including our youth.
Every parent and youth leader knows that being a teen in today’s culture isn’t easy—especially for teens who want to grow in their faith. So much in our world and culture is working against them to draw them away from the faith, and they need your help. This is where you come in.

Religious Education of Children

Religious Education of Children was developed by the Catholic Church of St. Paul in Ham Lake, Minnesota as a fresh approach to the difficulties families were facing with traditional religious education programs. They realized early on that, without parent’s involvement in their children’s catechesis, it wasn’t successful. At St. Philip Neri-Blessed Sacrament, offering faith formation for the children of the parish is a priority.

We meet every Wednesday at St. Philip Neri Catholic School unless otherwise stated on the religious education schedule. The materials for the month are supplied to the parents along with the opportunity to have any and all questions about the aforementioned materials explained.

In addition, St. Philip Neri offers sacramental preparation courses for your child as well including First Reconciliation, First Communion, and Confirmation.

We encourage and invite all families to attend the weekend Mass. Our children live what they learn and learn what they live.
