Faith Formation is a Religious Education Program offered to the young members of our parish (ages 6 to 15) allowing them to gain a deeper insight into their faith and God’s love for them. In the course of classes and various service projects, students learn to live Jesus’ Gospel message “To Love Your Neighbor.” Registration begins in March for the following September session.

It is important that every child receive a religious education. We have fine programs with dedicated teachers and staff. It is the obligation of parents to see that their children receive religious formation and the sacraments. Each year of Religious Education is important since every year there is a special emphasis on a particular aspect of faith and morality.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is received in second grade.  This follows two years of preparation for the sacrament.

The Sacrament of First Eucharist is received in third grade.  This follows preparation for the sacrament of Reconciliation and one year of preparation for the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist.

Confirmation Preparation begins on the 7th Grade level and continues for two consecutive years. After two years of Confirmation preparation, the Sacrament of Confirmation is received the following fall.

Classes meet September through May.
Monday 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm (grades 1-8)
