"Before sowing the seeds of the Gospel, let your prayers be as rain upon the field." Bishop Lambert De la Motte
We, the clergy, director, coordinators, parents, catechists, and volunteers, at St. Barbara's Faith Formation Program aspire to model after the life of Jesus Christ Crucified by providing a loving and compassionate atmosphere where our students can learn and live the message of Jesus' love and sacrifice. Through our efforts, the students will deepen their Catholic Christian faith and identity through religious instruction, formation in conscience, prayer, worship, and involvement in areas of Christian service.

Pope's prayer to Virgin Mary for Protection
O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick. At the foot of the Cross you participated in Jesus’ pain, with steadfast faith. You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need. We are certain that you will provide, so that, as you did at Cana of Galilee, joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial. Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform ourselves to the Father’s will and to do what Jesus tells us: He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and bore our sorrows to bring us, through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection. Amen. We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God.
Do not despise our pleas – we who are put to the test – and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin
