Family Catechesis / General Faith Formation for grades PreK – 3

The Catholic Church recognizes that parents are the first and primary educators of the faith for their families.

Family Catechesis is a faith formation model that supports parents and children in the faith.  This model provides you with an opportunity to meet other parents, to learn and grow through activities with your children, and for your children to create friends and community.

We also have faith formation programs for youth grades 4 – 12!  Visit our Youth Ministry page to learn more!

Does your child need preparation classes for the sacraments of Reconciliation, Confirmation or Eucharist?  Visit our Sacrament Preparation page to learn more!

The Reconciliation Chapel may or may not be used. If not, another suitable place will be designated. The church must be prepared for the 5 pm Mass, which is why confessions will end promptly at 4 pm and not all parts of the church may be available for prayer from 3 – 4 pm. Please note that this is a trial period, and after several weeks, we will review and make any needed adjustments.
