LIFELONG FAITH FORMATION

Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.- Matthew 19:14

Religious Education for grades K-8

Parents are the primary catechists of their children.

Our parish religious education program exists to assist parents in the responsibility they undertook at their children’s baptism, to raise them in the faith that we profess. Children learn about God, faith, prayer, and participation in Sunday Eucharist from the example of their family members long before they attend formal religious education!

 

Family participation in Sunday Eucharist is central to faith formation.

Recognizing that families lead busy lives, we still maintain that regular Sunday (or Saturday evening) Mass attendance is central to our Catholic faith and practice. All of the essential elements of our faith are expressed and celebrated in the Eucharistic liturgy, and we learn the prayers and actions of the Mass by regular participation.

 

Our parish religious education sessions are on Sunday mornings, 10:15-11:45am, September through June. 

Come to the Parish Center to register your child or you can register by clicking here. New registrations require a baptismal certificate for each child.

 

Adult Faith Formation is offered at the same time as K-8 Religious Education.

Parents and any interested adults are welcome to join at any time. There is no cost. A rotating group of catechists offer reflections on the Sunday Scriptures, and adults have an opportunity to discuss and reflect on the Scriptures over a cup of coffee or tea.

 

Want to get involved?

We often need volunteers as catechists or assistants, substitutes or greeters. Volunteers can serve as little as one Sunday a month, or on a weekly basis. See the Pastoral Associate for more information. All volunteers in the religious education program are interviewed, and must submit to a background check.
