Faith Formation Commission

As lay members of the Holy Name Cathedral parish community, the Faith Formation Commission assists our Pastor in helping our fellow parishioners grow in discipleship by deepening our Catholic faith. We do this by helping all who walk through our Cathedral doors understand God’s word in Sacred Scripture; gain a better understanding of the fundamentals of our faith; of the Mass; of the Sacraments. We help spread the Word of God, and the Good news in collaboration with the Director of Faith Formation.

Examples of our activities are:

  • Weekly Bible Study held every Wednesday in the rectory – We review the 1st reading (usually from the Old Testament) and the Gospel read from the Lectionary the previous Sunday. We give a historical overview and context of both readings then open discussion on what the verses mean to us and how to apply them to our daily lives.
  • Sponsor evenings of evangelization by experts in various areas of theology
  • Offer education on Papal teaching and newly issued encyclicals.
  • Partner with the other parish commissions to further discipleship
