Faith Formation is a lifelong journey beginning in the home where the foundations of faith are laid primarily by the child’s parents and their godparents in their ongoing responsibility to foster the child’s growth in faith and to encourage and support the parents in their work of passing on the faith. Along with the families we as a community work together to guide our children toward a life of discipleship to Jesus.


Our Catechetical program of instruction is provided for the children and youth of our parish. The programs for grades K through 8 have classes on Sunday mornings from September to May. The Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLW) during the Sunday 10 am Mass for our 4-7 year old's is another opportunity for our youngest parishioners to learn about God’s love.


Children who are willing to receive the sacrament of First Holy Communion must participate in two years of Faith Formation before they receive First Communion. During their second year, children are prepared for First penance and they receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation before they receive First Communion. 


Faith Formation sessions are on Sundays from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm. Parents are given the opportunity to live their faith together as a family by celebrating the Holy Mass at 10:00 am followed by Faith Formation Class.


Sign-up sheets and Registration Forms for Faith Formation will be available in the vestibule after all Weekend Masses in August.

The last days to register will be the first weekend of August (9/2, 9/3).

Please mark your calendar: Faith Formation sessions begin on Sunday, September 10,  from

11:30 am – 12:30 pm.
