Children & Family Ministry
The purpose of our Children and Family Faith Formation program is:
To assist, not to replace, parents in their primary role as educators of their childrens' lifelong faith journey.
- To directly involve parents in the religious formation of the ir children by providing tools to enable them to bring up their children as practicing Catholic Christians.
- To familiarize parents with the formal instruction provided to their children by home notices, meetings as needed and a variety of enrichment materials.
- To provide for family involvement in the ongoing faith life of our parish.
- To provide for and encourage service to our parish and community.
Classes are provided for our students from Pre-school through Grade 6 from October through mid-May. A variety of materials, including textbooks, videos, arts and crafts, music and more, are utilized in our classes. At least one service project is a part of each grade level class. Pre-school and Kindergarten classes are offered on Sunday morning only and Grades 1 through 8 are offered on Sunday morning or Wednesday evening. Our catechists (teachers) are a remarkable group of caring adults who share their faith with great enthusiasm and selfless devotion to our young ones.
An annual Vacation Bible School is held during the third week of July for students age 5 through Grade 5.. Our Junior High and High School students have the opportunity to assist with this fun program for our kids.
