About Our Children's Formation

About Our Children's Formation

We celebrate God's presence among us by creating a Christian learning environment through the cooperative efforts of parents, catechists, and students. Recognizing parents as the primary religious educators of children, our volunteer catechists and aides work to build a community of faith in which each student can better see and understand the action of God in our midst through faith-sharing, prayer and liturgy.

Faith Formation and Sacramental Programs

All program materials are in compliance with the General Directory for Catechesis. Our program is intended for faith formation and not just sacramental preparation. The program is designed for continuity through the formative years and the curriculum provides a complete and comprehensive presentation of doctrine, scripture, morality, prayer and sacraments. Skipping children's formation years in between reception of the sacraments may not allow for adequate spiritual preparation.
