Faith formation happens! Be it intentional or unintentional, every life experience can be an energizing and provocative opportunity to live out our Baptismal Covenant.

Christian formation is the lifelong process of growing in our relationship with God, self, others, and all creation. Every experience in our lives can provide us with the opportunity to express our faith; the challenge we face is recognizing these opportunities and learning ways to live a sometimes counter-cultural life in a secular world.
