The Four Pillars of the Catholic Faith


"Explore Four" is an approach to faith formation focused on forming ourselves and our children in the Catholic faith by full participation in the life of the parish.  This holistic approach to faith formation came from an intense study and reflection by our Faith Formation Board and Staff of documents written by our U.S. Catholic Bishops. The Parish is the Curriculum! Please see our Reflection Explanation below for a full description/explanation of this parish life focus.

CREED - we believe

MASS/SACRAMENTS - we worship 
Sacraments give us a sample of God's love and mercy.

Prayer and Christian Life are inseparable. CCC2757
