Faith Formation Ministry.

Immaculate Heart of Mary offers formation in the faith of the Catholic Church for all parishioners. Our program, Generations of Faith Formation, is designed to target all age groups with the goal of developing every person into a mature Christian who is strong in the faith.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, "The righteous shall live by faith." Romans 1:16-17
