Faith Formation for Children

A comprehensive approach to faith formation comprising:

  •  Sunday liturgy-the touchstone for all parishioners

  • Generations of Faith learning festivals

  • Home based catechesis-learning tools given to parents for use at home

  • Group classes-children gather in peer groups to foster further learning and community

Our program is designed for flexibility and to ensure that sacramental preparation needs are met. For this reason, grade levels may have slightly different requirements and schedules. Here they are at a glance…
