2024-2025 Children’s Faith Formation Program

Subscribe to our email list


The goal of children’s faith formation is to support parents in their efforts to help their children know and love God so as to serve Him in this life and be happy with Him forever in Heaven. We seek to accomplish this by teaching all of the truths that Jesus Christ revealed through the Catholic Church and by helping children build a real friendship with Christ through prayer and the sacraments. Our program will include:

  • Instruction in the truths of the Catholic faith
  • Training in prayer: learning how to encounter Christ through prayer, sacraments, and Scripture
  • Helping youth to form habits of virtue

We recognize and respect parents as the primary educators of their children, and our weekly program strives to support parents in this important task of sharing the Catholic faith with their children. It is our joy and privilege to help parents in this endeavor through:

  • Monthly Parent Formation Nights
  • Providing "at home" activities for families and parent sheets to help parents continue faith formation at home
  • Online resources to equip you to have meaningful conversations about faith with your children
  • Sacramental preparation that engages both parents and children

Faith Formation sessions for the 2024-25 school year will take place on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 - 8:00pm for youth in kindergarten - 8th grade.   REGISTRATION FEE for the 2024/2025 year will be $160.00 per student, but $135.00 if signed up before August 1.
