We welcome the children of our parish, ages three* through kindergarten to join us for Faith Formation during the 9 am and 10:45 am Masses. These early years are so important, as the foundation is being built for the child’s future faith life. Joining together with their peers, the children will be immersed in their Catholic faith through an interactive curriculum which introduces them to the essential faith concepts and God’s mighty love. Lessons are presented through stories, music, games, activities and crafts.
*Children should be toilet trained as our facilities are not designed for diaper changing during class time.
Catechists serve during the 9 and 10:45 am Masses in the Parish Education Center. Needed are adult catechists, high school catechists, nursery and session volunteers.
