Celebrating the Gift of God’s Love

Faith Formation for Children and Youth

Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from Him.  PS 127:3

The Catholic Church recognizes that the parents have primary responsibility for the religious education of their children. It is within family life that children learn about God, love for others, share prayer, learn about sacrifice and service, and celebrate sacraments together-including the Sunday Eucharist each week.

 

WEDNESDAY NIGHT PROGRAMMING (2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR)
Elementary and Middle School

The Faith Formation program geared for public and home-schooled children in grades one through eight is held on Wednesday evenings. Classes meet September through the beginning of May from 6:30 to 7:45 PM. 

Note that there are 3 forms to be completed:

REGISTRATIONS ARE DUE AUGUST 1st!  However, as we need to allocate appropriate space for each group, it is essential to have a clear picture of our faith formation numbers sooner rather than later.  Fees will not be collected until after August 1.

For more information, or if you have questions or concerns, please contact Kim Roering in the parish office.
