Faith Formation Groups:

Growing in Faith Together (GiFT)

GiFT Catalogue Winter-Spring 2020

“To the thirsty I will give water as a gift from the spring of the water of life.” (Rev 21:6)

 The Catholic-Christian life is a journey. From the moment of our baptism we are pilgrims in this world, nourished by the sacraments and strengthened by the Church. Faith formation is not a one-time event but, rather, an enduring commitment to living and growing in our Christian faith. We learn to conform our lives to Christ as we journey towards our final destination: union with God.

 OLPH Catholic Parish offers a number of opportunities for growing in your Catholic faith. Some of these, like Alpha and Catholicism 101, are offered regularly to provide a solid foundation for the journey. Others are one-time events, special presentations or courses that can enrich and expand your life of faith.

 If you have ideas or suggestions for faith formation at OLPH Parish, please contact the GiFT team at or call Pat Lemire at 780-467-5470.
