About Faith Formation

St. Jude’s Faith Formation is dedicated to supporting the faith journey of all our parishioners.  We are committed to sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ in the Catholic tradition through knowledge of the faith, Sacramental Preparation,  liturgical celebrations, prayer, involvement in parish life and outreach.  We provide formal education for youth until they are confirmed as well as a range of opportunities for adults in order to support the lifelong process of growing closer to God.

Becoming Catholic –The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process by which people can question, search and inquire into the Catholic faith.  At St. Jude, members of our parish partner with those who are journeying to become fully initiated Catholics (Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation).  We recognize that people are in all different places in their journey and we are here to help you in any way we can.  For more information contact Cindy Kozal in the faith formation office [email protected]
