Religious Education

 

Realizing that faith formation is a life long process, the parish cherishes the importance of family, 
and parish working together in passing on the values, beliefs, and traditions of the Catholic Faith, and the 
continual nurturing and nourishing of that faith by prayer and the sacraments. 

Children's Liturgy of the Word

 

Saint Callistus Church provides Children's Liturgy of the Word for 4-6 year olds during the 10:00 Mass each Sunday.  Children are invited to the classroom at the beginning of Mass to share the Sunday Scripture at a level they will understand.
 

Faith Formation Program

 

Saint Callistus Church provides a Faith Formation Program for the children of the parish from Kindergarten to eight grade.  The teaching of the Scripture; the Traditions of the Church, and Church teachings at appropriate levels, form the bases of this program. 

RCIA - Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

 

The RCIA is a process for welcoming adult newcomers (inquirers) into the Roman Catholic Church.  This process of full initiation is adapted to meet the needs of men and women who are:

  • Not baptized

  • Baptized in the Roman Catholic Church, but who have not completed their sacraments, or who have not been practicing their faith and need to develop a relationship with God that is alive and active.

  • Baptized in another Christian church and who now seek full membership in the Roman Catholic Church and need further instruction.
