St. John - Holy Angels Parish provides many opportunities for liturgical ministry involvement for parishioners of many ages.

The parish, along with the Diocese of Wilmington, provides instruction, training, and ongoing liturgical formation for all of those participating in a parish liturgical ministry. Your ministry will involve some time commitment for training and formation, some are weekly, some are once a year.  If you are interested in participating in any of the liturgical ministries described below, please contact Stephen Adams, Director of Liturgy & Music, (302) 731-2435 or or Amy Press, (302) 731-2219,

Faith formation is catechesis (teaching the faith) which aims deepen people’s contact with Jesus Christ via educational and enrichment opportunities. Designed to touch the intellect as well as the heart, these programs help people live and experience a more Christ-centered life.

The mission of St. John the Baptist - Holy Angels Formation offices, is to provide effective ways (programs) of catechesis for people of all ages and backgrounds. And in doing so we create a connection to the new evangelization envisioned by Second Vatican Council, the work of recent Popes, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which open the door to on-going conversion and a deep sense of a faith. Ultimately, faith formation is oriented toward the question: How do I practically and authentically live the Catholic faith?

Our mission is to nurture each child, along with their parents and/or guardians, on their journey of Faith.  This office provides and coordinates Religious Education and Sacramental Preparation for the children of our Parish.

Religious Education is provided for Grades: First through High School.

Sacramental Preparation is provided for children's First Reconciliation, First Communion and Confirmation.
