Activities are opening up and we pray that life will be close to what we know as normal come fall. We received a significant amount of positive feedback from families on last year’s programs – much better than anticipated given the circumstances. Per parent suggestions, we have developed a variety of ways for families to be together and for children to be with their peers in the best ways possible to meet the needs of all families.
For parishioners of all ages, there are opportunities throughout the year that provide an enhanced Catholic foundation in participatory and engaging settings, enabling all to grow and share in faith together.
- Adults– watch the bulletin for adult and family opportunities throughout the year.
- Middle school grades 6-8– These years are an important time for youth to more fully form their moral and spiritual identities. Journey small faith groups support this growth in a welcoming, supportive small-group setting that allows for sharing and growing in faith with peers.
- Children’s Faith Formation for grades 1-5– Recognizing and respecting that parents and family are the primary influencers of faith for children of this age, Children’s Faith Formation provides gatherings, resources, flexibility, and guidance to support parents in raising children with a lived faith that lasts a lifetime.
Interested in First Reconciliation and First Eucharist preparation?
Preparation for the sacraments of Reconciliation and First Eucharist is a two-year process that begins in the fall two years prior to sacrament reception. For example, those who begin in the fall of first grade will be prepared for sacrament reception in the spring of second grade. First Reconciliation and First Eucharist preparation and reception can also take place at any time beyond second grade.
