Faith Formation Children's Sunday Classes:
All Children who are not enrolled in Catholic schools are asked to enroll in the parish faith formation program. Classes are held from fall to spring and the calendar is linked above. These classes are taught by volunteer catechists who have ongoing catechetical training as well as the archdiocese child protection training. Classes are on Sundays from 9:15-10:45am at the school. Once a month there is a parent meeting from 9:30am – 10:30am. We periodically have Family Celebrations and other events for the entire family. Check the calendar above for current dates.
First Reconciliation and First Communion:
Sacramental preparation occurs for these sacraments in the 2nd grade Faith Formation Class. If a child is in need of these sacraments but is older than 2nd grade, there is a small class for older children as well.
Please indicate the need for these sacraments on your child’s registration form.
