Faith Formation

Christ Our Light strives to provide a comprehensive faith formation program that represents the teachings of Jesus Christ. Our goal is to form a community of faith by promoting a Catholic way of life through gospel values, prayer, and commitment to God, our church and our community.

Christ Our Light Youth Ministry:

Simply put, Youth Ministry is the Church's efforts to help each and every young person grow personally and spiritually. It is more than programs and events. Youth Ministry is a means for both junior high and high school students to grow as individuals while exploring ideas, values, and faith within the context of a supportive community of peers and adults.
