Do not be afraid! Life with Christ is a wonderful adventure. He alone can give full meaning to life, he alone is the center of history. Live by Him!
- St. Pope John Paul II
Faith Formation is a lifelong spiritual journey.
Whether you are inquiring about the Catholic faith, rediscovering Catholicism or a life-long Catholic, each parish in the Archdiocese of Portland has opportunities designed to help you strengthen your connection with God, and with one another. The parish community invites you to find meaning and purpose in life, a sense of belonging, inner peace and strength, and true freedom through the depth and beauty of our Catholic faith.
Our goal is to teach you to know Christ personally, and to know the Bible and the beauty of the Catholic faith. Our personal faith development is essential to the fulfillment of the Great Commission, a necessary step before all of us can be sent to ‘go and make disciples of all nations’ in the rest of the world.
