What do we do in our Faith Formation Program?
We present children and youth with the necessary knowledge and behaviors to live as disciples of Jesus.

Faith Formation informs, forms, and helps a child, youth, or adult to have the knowledge and understanding that the life-giving Christian faith identifies them as followers of Jesus.

In essence, we present our program in such a way that our children:

  1. Grow in their relationship with God for their whole life.
  2. Live as disciples of Jesus at home, at school, in the community, and eventually in the world.
  3. Develop an understanding of the Bible and our faith traditions.
  4. Deepen their spiritual life and practices.
  5. Engage in local community service.


  • Initial - Monday, October 14th at 6:00pm in the OLR Church Hall.
  • Recert - Monday, October 21st at 6:00pm in the OLR Church Hall.

Training is mandatory for anyone who comes in contact with children or youth including Eucharistic Ministers & Lectors.

Please contact Dr. Marybeth McCall - or call (315) 794-5038 for more information and to register.


  • Haven't Completed the Rites of Initiation...Baptism, First Holy Communion and Confirmation?

feminine hygiene products, toothpaste and toothbrushes, floss, mouthwash deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, shaving cream, razors and soap.

Thank you for your support.



The Bible actually tells one complete story. We don't typically think of the "big picture" when we hear parts of the chapters or just verses. It is, therefore, important to extend our reading to entire chapters so we "get" the big picture.

One way to interest our children in listening to and eventually reading the Bible themselves is to introduce different books in both the Old and New Testaments through solving puzzles. Word puzzles can be solved with help from older brothers or sisters or other family members. Discussions can then take place about some words in the puzzles events or people- and then the entire story can be read aloud from the Bible.

This way we and our children become familiar with the stories in the entire Bible and eventually understand the "big picture"
