 Faith Formation

Our children will need the love and strength that is provided by a strong faith life to grow up in today's world. Church teaching makes it very clear that for faith to take root in the heart of a child it takes two important providers.​....The Family and The Parish!

 #1 - The Family

​Our teachings refers to the family as the Domestic Church.  In the family a child grows up observing adults who pray, who celebrate Mass and the Sacraments,  who live Christian lives.  Our Faith Formation office is here to help parents be the best example they can be. (see adult Faith Formation)​

 #2 - The Parish

It is the parish's desire and obligation to provide programs to build on the foundation that the parents are laying.  The parish Faith Formation program strives to provide a deeper understanding and love for Jesus Christ, his Church, Scripture, and Sacraments.

Faith Formation for our children entering Grades 1st through 8th grades is undertaking a new look.  We will now be a hybrid type model -- some with a catechist and some at home.  We are extremely excited to be rolling out this new way to live our faith!

Contact the Faith Formation Office with any questions about this program.​

 2020 - 2021 Calendar & Information

We are currently working out details for how Faith Formation will be handled for the upcoming year.  While the current issues surrounding the Covid-19 Pandemic have caused obstacles, we are working with the guidance of the Holy Spirit to develop new, outside-the-box ways to help our youth and families to develop and grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ.
