Parish Faith Formation
The Diocese of Manchester, Parish Faith Formation, is committed to supporting life-long faith formation to our parishes, children, youth and families.
Through prayer, study, and professional development we invite people to a personal and intentional relationship with Jesus Christ.
Catholic Formation Materials
Please refer to the letter from Bishop Libasci regarding the materials to be used for Parish and Catholic School Faith Formation AND Sacrament Preparation with children and youth in grades K-8 and for Parish Family Faith Formation.
Once again NET is coming to the Diocese of Manchester, and offering 16 possible retreat dates between October 8 and October 28. NET conducts junior high, senior high, Confirmation, and mixed-age retreats. They provide a variety of retreat themes, dramatic skits, and music, making every retreat a unique and Catholic experience. While the theme varies, the message is always the same: “In Jesus Christ, the son of God made man, who died and rose from the dead, salvation is offered to all, as a gift of God’s grace and mercy.” (Evangelization in the Modern World, Pope Paul VI) NET retreats are a great component to integrate into your existing Catholic youth program, Parish/School Programs, and Youth Nights.
Restore, Renew Proclaim: the Hope that is Christ
The Diocese of Manchester has launched a new initiative for strengthening and renewing lifelong faith formation, known as “Restore, Renew, Proclaim the Hope that is Christ.”
