Children's Faith Formation

Children's Faith

"Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." ... Jesus of Nazareth

Mission Statement

To enrich each child's ongoing faith formation by creating a welcoming place where they may grow in the knowledge of Catholic faith, morality, prayer, worship and Christian service.

Parents - You are your child's first teacher in the school of life and faith. Please join in our mission by:

  • Attending Mass with your child on a regular basis
  • Promoting regular attendance at Faith Formation Classes
  • Reviewing their lessons with them after each class
  • Sharing your faith in your own way

Sunday Morning Children's Faith Formation: PreK (4 year olds) - Grade 5, meet weekly between the morning Masses from 9:20-10:30am.

Sunday Evening Children's Faith Formation: Grades 3 - 8, meet twice a month after the evening Mass from 6:20-8:00 pm.
