Formed by Faith

Formed by Faith is an opportunity and invitation to learn more about the beauty of our Catholic faith and to encounter the person of Christ in His Word and Sacraments.  As we grow in relationship with Our Lord, we are better prepared to respond to our Baptismal call to holiness and discipleship.  This program is not only for those seeking to receive Level One Ministry Certification in the Diocese of Tucson, but also for those wishing to learn more about our Catholic faith.  Formed by Faith is for all Catholics in all parishes in the Yuma/LaPaz VicariateSessions will be hosted at St. John Neumann Parish on the second Saturday of each month from 8:30am-3:00pm through February 2020.  Registration begins at 8:00am.  Lunch will be on your own.  Please RSVP no later than three days prior to each upcoming session.  Topics covered are listed below.
