Children’s Faith Formation

Faith Formation classes are cancelled until the COVID-19 emergency passes.  We remain united as a parish family in prayer!

Our Program

Our Faith Formation program provides a number of options to help children in Kindergarten through 8th grade grow in their relationship with God, prepare for the Sacraments, and discover the truth and beauty of the Catholic Faith. Together with parents, we are committed to helping our youth come alive in their faith and build a firm foundation in Christ that will last for the rest of their lives. Each week we offer faith formation classes for K-8 that allow children to grow in their relationship with God, learn about their Catholic Faith, and develop faith-based friendships.
