The church recognizes that parents are the first and best teachers of faith for their children. Our program offers support and structure to the formation that is happening at home. We strive to integrate the meaning and message of the Word of God, the development of a community of faith, the celebration of Liturgy and worship, and to promote a life of service and discipleship.
The Faith Formation program offers weekly sessions for Kindergarten through Grade 6, Children's Liturgy of the Word during the 11:00 am Mass, and Sacramental preparation.
Pictures from First Eucharist have been added to the Parish Photos page. If you ordered a disc and have not yet picked it up, please contact the Faith Formation Office to make arrangements.
