Religious Ed

Welcome to the Office of Faith Formation

Faith Formation addresses the lifelong process by which we may come to know and love the Lord as true disciples of the faith through the teachings of Jesus Christ, Sacred Scriptures, Church Doctrine, the Sacraments, Church traditions, life experiences and prayer.

Growing in Faith

The Office of Faith Formation offers religious education programs for the parish community from birth to death. This includes the Religious Education program for preschool – 12th grade students including sacramental preparation for: First Reconciliation, First Eucharist and Confirmation; adult education and Rite of Christian Initiation for those wishing to become Catholic or just needing a refresher.
