Mustard Seed Initiatives are intended to assist families to grow in God’s love and to respond to the challenges that the love of His Son Jesus places upon us. The goal of this initiative is to help adult family members to more fully understand their faith so that you can both share and strengthen it in your children. Each academic year, we as a parish community have an expectation that parents of each family in our school and religious education program will be involved in at least five hours of Adult Faith Formation and Family Catechesis. The hourly expectation is meant to apply per family regardless of the number of children in the family.
Many of the opportunities for prayer, spiritual growth and service which you already undertake are included in a list of offerings and will complete our expectation of a five hour commitment. Mustard Seed activities are highlighted on the parish calendar and filtered on the list to the left. New and emerging opportunities will be announced in the bulletin and on the website in the upcoming year.
May your participation in this process help you to understand that Jesus Christ is ever present to us offering us His comfort at the worst of times and challenging us at the best of times to be His agents of hope and instruments of peace in our community and world.
