LIFELONG FAITH FORMATION
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta Parish provides faith formation experiences for people of different ages and various stations in life. The richness of this experience depends upon parishioners who are willing to share their own faith journey with others. This can happen in a variety of ways such as, bible studies, speakers, retreats, faith sharing groups, reading materials, Advent and Lenten offerings, are provided to grow in that love. There is always a need for mentors, leaders and other volunteers in the ministries described below. Check often for information on offerings for adult faith formation.

MARRIAGE PREPARATION MINISTRY MENTORS
Engaged couples are best prepared when they have an opportunity to spend time with happily married couples from the parish, who serve as living witnesses of the beauty and sanctity of lifelong marriage and as living connections to active parish life. Married couples involved in Marriage Ministry may serve as sponsors/mentors for the engaged, and as team couples in marriage preparation catechetical events.

ELEMENTARY FAITH FORMATION CATECHISTS
Want to make a difference in the lives of our parish children!
The rewards gained from guiding our children and youth through their religious education are priceless. Whether committing to teaching a weekly class or signing on to help with a one-time event, every experience is a positive one. It takes a whole community of believers to prepare the children and youth of today for becoming the Catholic adults of tomorrow.
