Faith Formation

The definitive aim of catechesis

is to put people not only in touch

but in communion, in intimacy,

with Jesus Christ.

-Saint John Paul II

On Catechesis In Our Time

Apostolic Exhortation

Hi everyone!  I am super excited to share my Faith story and love for Christ with the St. Paul family!  I want to help our young people discover the beauty of Catholicism, and support them in their relationship and walk with Christ.  I can't wait to meet all of you!



Family - The Domestic Church

The home is the first school of Christian life and 'a school for human enrichment.'  Here one learns endurance

and the joy of work, fraternal love, generous — even repeated — forgiveness, and above all divine worship in prayer and the offering of one’s life.

-Catechism of the Catholic Church, #1657
