Evangelization/Faith Formation

The Evangelization and Faith Formation Committee (EFF) serves to support initiatives of the parish’s catechetical and spiritual formation. Examples of this include: religious education, youth ministry, RCIA, family enrichment ministry, young adult ministry, and adult faith formation. Opportunities abound for parishioners of every age to build their faith by joining ministries sponsored by the EFF. You are invited to share your voice and vision in building future faith endeavors for our parish.

The EFF Committee meets each third Tuesday of each month from 6:00 to 7:00 PM in the Conference Room of the McCall Center.
