Welcome to the Office of Christian Formation
We seek to serve the Community of Chesapeake through programs that develop and support an individual’s Catholic faith. We believe that Christian Formation is an ongoing process, which calls us to a deeper, changing and intimate relationship with Christ, and with our brothers and sisters. As Christians we are continually called to conversion.
Our Christian Formation programs are designed for everyone, at every stage of life – children, youth and adults. It is our hope that we can offer programs that support, encourage, and inspire our children, youth, and adults in their life’s ongoing faith journey.
