St Mary Hyde Park Vision Statement for Faith Formation – January 2018
St Mary Parish views faith formation as a lifelong journey through which we grow in our love and knowledge of God and in our understanding of ourselves as disciples of Christ. We seek to lead children, adolescents and adults into ever-maturing faith, thereby forming a faith community energized and empowered to live and spread the Gospel message.
St Mary Catechesis and Education Commission meets 7 times per year. The current commission consists of Fr. Ken Schartz, pastor, Michele Carle-Bosch, Director of Religious Education, Jay Galla, parishioner, Kathy Greiner, St Mary School Teacher, Stefanie Jenemann, parishioner, and Ashley Gabriel, Youth Minister. We seek 3 more members to complete our commission. Qualifications desired: an interest in faith formation and educational opportunities for the parish. A willingness to be involved in planning/supporting activities in family catechesis, adult faith opportunities, and religious education for all children who are parishioners of St. Mary Parish.
Please consider joining our commission for a 3 year term.
