What is Faith Formation
Faith Formation is centered on the spiritual growth process that we experience individually to become closer to God. Our faith formation is not only about religious education classes and bible studies, it is about learning how to live together in Christ, how to share the gifts we’ve been given and how to grow spiritually through prayer and participation in the Mass.
The Church of Saint Luke offers religious education classes from September to May on Sunday mornings, for grades pre-kindergarten through high school.

G.K. Chesterton once wrote, “The difficulty in explaining 'why I am a Catholic' is that there are ten thousand reasons all amounting to one reason: that Catholicism is true.” Nearly 2,000 years ago, Jesus Christ founded the Catholic Church to preserve the truth He gave us and hand it down through the centuries, helping people all around the world encounter the love of God in every age and in every corner of the earth. Over the years, there have been an untold number of questions and objections raised about the Catholic Church’s teachings and practices. The answers are there, and it’s worth your time to find them. As the Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen once said, “There are not even 100 people in this country who hate the Catholic Church, but there are millions who hate what they think the Catholic Church to be.” The Lord wants us all to know and understand His truth, so we can embrace it wholeheartedly and live by it. Christ reminds us, “The truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). ( https://www.catholicscomehome.org/) The Rite of Christian Initiation (R.C.I.A.) is a process of spiritual conversion and growth in one’s relationship with God and the Church. It is a faith journey where adults are fully welcomed into the Catholic Church. If you are interested in exploring a relationship with Jesus Christ, we welcome you! For more information about the R.C.I.A. process, please contact the Religious Education Office at (570) 421-9097 or by email at email@example.comLearn more
