The Light Of Christ began in 2004 when innovative individuals from six local parishes came together, prior to being formally clustered in 2008 as Christ Our Hope, to create a strong religious education and faith formation program that built upon the existing strong school and community identity. These founding parishioners took on the challenge to not simply combine the existing religious education programs, that only served the needs of students, but strived to create a faith formation program, known as Generations of Faith, that meets the needs of parishioners of all ages.
The Light of Christ Faith Formation Program (LOC) serves the parishioners of Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Little Turkey), Holy Trinity (Protivin), Our Lady of Mt. Carmel (Lawler), St. John Nepomucene (Ft. Atkinson), St. Luke (St. Lucas), and St. Mary (Waucoma). We offer a variety of faith formation programs including Generations of Faith, Sacramental Preparation, and Youth Liturgists in every parish to organize local youth masses. The LOC is guided by a Faith Formation Commission composed of two elected representatives from each parish, the Pastor and the Director of Faith Formation.
Like other programs, ours has matured and evolved. In December of 2009 we were blessed to begin utilizing the Fr. Moran center at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. This facility was specifically built to provide faith formation for the youth. This change allows all students to be taught in a traditional classroom setting by experienced teachers during the grade level break-out sessions.
All parishioners young and old are encouraged to regularly participate in our variety of faith formation programs and service opportunities.
