Children's Faith Formation

Elementary Faith Formation


 Our Children's Faith Formation program includes grades Pre-K (children who are age 4 by class start date) through 5th grade.  Students are led to an understanding and love of our faith through dedicated instruction and guidance. They are given hands-on activities which help them delight in their time with us.  During the children's consistent, weekly instruction, we work together with families to help the child become grounded in the tenets of Catholicism while sharing with them the peace and joy Jesus brings into our lives.

The classes are held on Sundays starting at  8:45 am and ending at 10am so families can rejoin and attend the 10:30am mass together, if they wish.

Our Elementary Faith Formation Education Program follows the Archdiocesan curriculum guidelines. We currently use the Blest Are We: Faith & Word series of textbooks, published by RCL Benziger; an excellent guide for students and catechists.
