Faith Formation for Children

Faith Formation for Children: 2024-25 School Year

The goal of this ministry is to help our children not just to receive the sacraments, but to help them experience a personal relationship with Jesus and become life-long disciples of Jesus.  Simply knowing what the Catholic Church teaches is a beginning, but our goal is to teach children and families what it means to live out that faith every day.

Children in the 1st and 2nd grade will be prepared to receive the Sacraments of Penance and First Communion in the spring of 2nd grade. Children in the 7th and 8th grade will be prepared to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation after completion of 8th grade.

If you feel a calling to work with and teach our children in forming their faith, please contact the Faith Formation office. All instructors are required to complete the online Diocese Safe Environment Training and be fingerprinted. Classes begin in September and run until April. We also sponsor the summer Vacation Bible School (details will be in the Bulletin).
