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 volunteer parishioners) partner with parents who seek to mentor 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.


 

Of Note: Our parish’s Sacrament Preparation  is part of an overall Faith Formation process, either through enrollment in our parish school or parish Faith Formation.  Families who are seeking to prepare an older child for reception of the Sacraments should refer to our Family Faith Formation page for more information.


 Faith Formation for Children meets two Saturdays per month throughout the school calendar year.
