FAITH FORMATION MISSION STATEMENT
The mission of the St. Margaret’s Faith Formation Program is to build a foundation of faith, in partnership with parents, from which our children and families will grow in their knowledge of God and the Roman Catholic Church. Through education classes, liturgical celebrations, and sacramental preparation, as well as social and service opportunities, our hope is that students and parents have opportunities to enrich their personal relationship with God.
