Christian Formation at St. Mary's is each Sunday morning from 10am-10:50am. Our education is aimed at lifelong growth in the knowledge, service and love of God as followers of Christ and is informed by Scripture, Tradition and Reason.
Adults meet in Martyrs Hall or the Sisters' Chapel. Children meet in the Moody Wing, and Youth meet in the Youth Room off the Crypt downstairs.
Spring 2019 Christian Formation Offerings
Children & Youth
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (3-6 year olds)
led by Terra Nwobilor & Julie Byrd
The themes presented in the atrium are taken from the Bible and the liturgy (prayers and sacraments) as the fundamental sources for creating and sustaining Christian life at every developmental stage, and in particular, for illuminating and nourishing the child in his/her wonder and questions.
Elementary Sunday School (6-9 year olds)
led by Vickie Baselski & Marsha Callow
This class is creatively designed to explore the stories of Scripture through the lectionary and engage the liturgical season through art, games, and snacks.
Middle School (6th-8th grade)
led by Natalie Williams
Using components of the Walkwith901 program, middle school students gather for spiritual formation and reflection on liturgical seasons through art, music, and cultural exploration to integrate principles of social justice into their day to day lives.
High School (9th-12th grade)
led by Justin Merrick
Each Sunday is a lively, open, thoughtful discussion time to discuss pertinent current topics and how as Christians we approach them. Trips to coffee shops, breakfast joints, and other local venues with various volunteers and clergy are part of this Sunday time together.
