The Catholic Community  of St. John Neumann
A Christian Church of the Catholic Tradition
Califon, NJ

The Church's catechetical mission aims to help the faithful of all ages to grow in both human and Christian maturity, enriching the whole of life with the leaven of the Gospel. Consequently, appropriate goals and content will embrace all the faith dimensions of an adult life—for example, understanding and communicating the faith, skills needed for personal growth, the experience of family life, relationships, public service, and concern for the common good.

GIFT Family Faith program is the intergenerational formation program. There is an adult formation portion on this program. Our adult faith formation ministry engages the particular needs and interests of the adults in each stage of life. There are two offering in the months of September to May. Fr. Rick will offer relevant topics in a comprehensive and systematic presentation. We explore the core elements of Catholic faith and practice—a complete initiation into a Catholic way of life. This is done in a manner that is accessible to adults and relates to their life experiences, helping them to form a Christian conscience and to live their lives in the world as faithful disciples of Jesus. Consider joining one or all of the sessions.  A list of dates per our published schedule are on the web page (GIFT Family Formation). For more information contact Phyllis at or Mauricia at
