Faith Formation

As a Catholic parish community, St. Sabina is committed to providing total and lifelong faith formation for all people. We take seriously the challenge of Vatican II to provide formation for our community so that we can all become “full, conscious and active participants” in carrying out the mission and ministry of Jesus.

Based on the bishops’ Pastoral Plan for Adult Faith Formation in the United States, Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us, adult faith formation in our parish community appropriates the three major goals that guide and direct efforts in adult faith formation:

1. To Invite and Enable Ongoing Conversion to Jesus in Holiness of Life.
2. To Promote and Support Active Membership in the Christian Community.
3. To Call and Prepare Adults to Act as Disciples in Mission to the World.

To accomplish these goals we offer many and various spiritual and educational opportunities. We do this in a manner that is accessible to adults, always relating our common baptismal call to our life experience in both church and world. Christian faith formation provides adults with methods of exploring and reflecting on our faith, enabling them to forge their own path to God while helping them form their consciences according to the teachings and example of Jesus. Adult faith formation integrates actual life experience, diverse adult learning needs, the study of Scripture, and the teaching of the Church’s tradition, thus creating an environment that promotes intellectual, moral, and spiritual faith development.

All adult faith development aims at forming Christians to be followers of Christ immersed in the world to carry on the mission and ministry of Jesus. We, at St. Sabina, invite you to take an active part in our faith formation opportunities and programs. Come and see. Come and be fed. Come, learn and reflect with us on how we can be more effective disciples of Christ in both church and world.

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, the RCIA, is a process which welcomes all who are interested in becoming Catholic, or any Catholic wishing to deepen their understanding of the faith.  The Rite involves the formation of a community that learns, shares, builds community and prays together to deepen their relationship to God and to the parish family.  Below are some of the values that we hold as Catholic Christians, which we readily share with all who desire to journey with us through the RCIA.
