Faith Formation for Children

Faith Formation

WHERE FINDING GOD AND RELIGIOUS EDUCATION COME TOGETHER

Faith Formation for Children is a process in which our catechist team (staff and parishioners) partner with parents in the task of mentoring their child into living our  faith.  Through this process children and adults are invited to discover and to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ so as to live more fully our Catholic Christian faith.  As disciples we are called to make Christ present in the world through the Body of Christ, the Church.
