Faith Formation encompasses the experiences and education that enable us to continue to grow in our Catholic faith. Here at Precious Blood a number of opportunities exist or are being considered to provide ongoing formation to all parishioners, both children and adults.

The Faith Formation Commission is a group of parishioners who are dedicated to providing faith formation opportunities to the entire parish community. This Commission works with the Director of Faith Formation to discern the formation needs of the parish and how best to meet those needs.

Scripture study is offered both on a periodic and ongoing basis for those adults who would like to meet and reflect on God's holy word. Times vary. The bulletin will have information regarding when scripture study is scheduled.

All students meet on Wednesday evening from 7:00 to 8:15 p.m. for faith formation sessions.  Grades six, seventh, and eighth grade faith formation focuses on the Christian Scriptures, church history, as well as the Creed.  Discussions, activities and reflection are a major part of their formation time.

The high school approaches their faith formation a little differently. Different topics are discussed using the “Learn about it, pray about it, and live it” approach.  This process uses a variety of methods for catechesis, including discussion, discernment, reflection and activities.  The topics discussed are taken for the student’s everyday lives.  Opportunities are provided for the students to take ownership of their Catholic faith and identity.

The first Wednesday evening of each month, all students in grades six through high school from Precious Blood, Holy Family, and St. Joseph parishes in Jasper, IN gather together and share in activities in conjunction with Bosco Youth Ministry.  Please view the Faith Formation Calendar for the awesome activities planned for each month.

St. John Bosco Youth Ministry includes the four parishes located in the Jasper area - Holy Family, St. Joseph, Precious Blood and St. Mary in Ireland. Under the leadership of Angie Greulich and a team of youth and adults, various activities are provided for fellowship, fun, service and spiritual growth on an ongoing basis throughout the year.

Children from Kindergarten through second grade are invited to attend Children’s Liturgy of the Word during 10:30 A.M. Mass on Sundays.  The children are dismissed following the opening prayer to hear scriptures and a reflection in an age appropriate manner.  The children rejoin the community before the Liturgy of the Eucharist.

Children’s church gathers each Sunday during the school year during the 10:30 AM Mass.  The children are introduced to the Sunday scripture through the Pflaum “Seeds” program.  The children are also introduced to sacred gestures and prayers that we, as Catholic Christians, use regularly.  Children’s Church is a bridge to encourage the children to continue their faith formation from the Sacrament of Baptism to the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Eucharist.
