FAMILY FAITH FORMATION / CATECHETICAL MINISTRY
It is the parents who have given life to their children, on them lies the gravest obligation of education for their family. They must therefore be recognized as being primarily and principally responsible for their education…the family is therefore the principal school of the social virtues which are necessary to every society.

Our Family Faith Formation/Catechetical Ministry programs support families and their children as they grow closer to God and deepen their faith.
Early Childhood Education (ECE) is offered on Sundays for children 3-5 years old while parents celebrate Mass.
Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) provides those 6 years and older the opportunity to hear and understand each Sunday's scriptures by presenting the Word in "kid-friendly" language.
Elementary Faith Formation - Our weekly classes for grades 1 through 5 allow us to help parents in their responsibility to continue the faith formation of their children. In addition to preparing already baptized children for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist (Communion), we also have a program for the full-initiation of children who have not been baptized.
Middle School/Junior High Faith Formation - Our Middle School/Junior High program is for grades 6-8 and consists of two main components: Faith Formation and EDGE Youth Ministry.
