As we continued our discernment at the meeting, the need of a mission statement for each ministry was noted and accomplished.
Evangelization and Faith Formation Mission of Our Lady of the Angels Catholic Community shall strive to accomplish its goals through: “Involvement of individual families of all ages and circumstances through fellowship and faithbased action toward living, walking and sharing our Faith”.
Already in place are Faith Formation (Grade 1-8), Confirmation Prep (Grade 9 & 10), RCIA, Youth Ministry, Children’s Liturgy (10:30am Sunday), Praise and Worship Liturgy (5:00pm Sunday), Adult Faith Formation, Bible Study, Vacation Bible School, and Catechists’ continuing education.
Future activities may include Community Service opportunities for students, adults and families; an ecumenical Faith Formation community event; Mystagogy for newly initiated Catholics; and Book Group/OLA Library.
