The Sacred Heart Faith Formation Committee seeks to help bring people into "communion and intimacy" with Jesus Christ and develop a "living, explicit and fruitful" faith. We will do this by collaborating with other committees at Sacred Heart to provide opportunities for parishioners of ages that will: - increase their knowledge of the faith - deepen their knowledge of and participation in the liturgical life - help them learn about and grow in their moral development - learn about prayer and deepen their prayer life - promote and support active membership in the Christian community - call and prepare them to "act as disciples in mission to the world"
