Lifelong Faith Formation

Faith Formation

Saint Luke the Evangelist Parish is committed to a process where all parishioners of any age are invited to grow in their experience of their own Catholic Faith.  Our programs are centered around these principles:

a.   The centrality of Sunday Liturgy as the “source and summit” of our lives as Christians

b.   The need to connect worship – learning – service

c.    The desire to be flexible for family schedules while at the same time providing quality religious education educational materials for students, parents and parishioners

d.    For school students, a need to dissociate our religious education programs from the “school system” and the “grade level mentality”

  1.     Focus on intergenerational learning (as per Diocese of Manchester initiatives)

                    2.     Focus on group / age appropriate learning

                    3.     Connect Sunday Liturgy with religious education experience with parishioners

    e.     A clear focus on the meaning of the Catholic experience  

                    1.   Life-long learning as a basis
                    2.  Witnesses as teachers   
                    3.  All are invited to share in the learning process 

We offer programs for adults each season of the year.  Some past topics included:
