The St. Polycarp Parish Christian Formation Committee (CFC) is looking for members of the parish who would like to serve the parish as a member of the Christian Formation Committee.  The CFC is concerned with the total Catholic education in the parish, by providing leadership and guidance in the area of Christian formation, and by formulating goals and objectives that will guide Catholic formation programs for children, youth and adults at St. Polycarp.  Any member of the parish who is interested in joining the CFC, or any organization that has items to submit to the CFC for consideration are asked to email the committee at stpp.cfc@gmail.com.

We are conducting a re-census of all registered parishioners.  Every household must complete the new census form. This can be done by email, through the website, or by completing a hard copy found at the church entrances.  This new census will not only assist us in updating our records but will give us a more accurate representation of who we are as a parish family.

Check your local listings to see where/when it is showing in your area.
