St. Matthew > Faith Formation > Special Needs Faith Formation

Our Catholic Friends faith formation programs are offered with the desire to bring all of God’s children to an encounter with Jesus. Participants are divided into age appropriate groups and paired with a Faith Friend to help guide them through the session’s activities.

I praise you, because I am wonderfully made; wonderful are your works! Psalm 139:14
