Our two primary goals in our children’s and youth ministry programs are to provide your family with opportunities to encounter Jesus Christ and to support you in raising His disciples in the Catholic faith.   It is an honor and a privilege to serve and support your family

 If you are interested in having your child join one of our Faith Formation programs, we welcome you!  Our sessions began the week of September 23.  While our online registration portal is closed, we will continue taking registrations in person!  Please visit the Office of Faith Formation at the main campus, Monday through Friday, 9 am to 4:30 pm.  To discover more about our specific programs in Children’s and Youth Ministry at St. Matthew, please explore our offerings through the links below. 

If you are a parent of a second grade or eighth grade Catholic School student seeking to register your child for sacramental preparation, you may do so by selecting  Catholic School Sacramental Preparation

Interested in serving as a Catechist or Youth Ministry Volunteer?

We are excited you are considering joining us in passing on our beautiful Catholic faith!  When we use the term ‘catechist’ we refer to all those who are participating in the task of bringing others closer to Christ in our Faith Formation program – this includes teens and adults, as well as those who serve as small group facilitators and session volunteers.
