Faith Formation Commission
Gesu's Faith Formation Commission helps to lead the Gesu family and those interested in the Catholic faith into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ, the Father/Creator and the Spirit. The commission seeks those who are interested in becoming involved in the formation of Baptisms, the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA), Confirmation, and Advent and Lenten programs.
Also a part of the Faith Formation Commission, the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a program focusing on the religious formation of children. The program is rooted in the Bible, the liturgy of the Church, and in Montessori educational principles.
