Faith Formation

Religious Education and Formation is an important part of any Catholic parish community. St. Maria Goretti strives to provide exceptional faith formation at any age. We are all called to participate in on-going faith formation!

Liturgical ministry is an excellent opportunity to fulfill your baptismal call of service to one another. Our liturgies utilize the talents and gifts that God has given this community to the fullest extent. These ministries are necessary to insure our Masses at St. Maria Goretti are celebrated with full, active, and conscious participation.

Our shared life as a parish family goes beyond our normal worship and includes times of fellowship and celebration. Our parish life groups are ministries of service and hospitality.

Outreach

St. Maria Goretti Outreach ministries are committed to serve those less fortunate. These ministries are necessary to insure those in need are served with dignity and compassion.
