Faith Formation

Children’s Faith Formation (Grades K-8)

Our religious instruction classes are held Sunday mornings.  Children from Kindergarten through grade 8 meet weekly with catechists to learn the basics of their Catholic faith and to prepare for the reception of the sacraments.

G.I.F.T. (Growing In Faith Together) Program (Grades 9-12)

This program is geared toward high school aged youngsters to participate in faith, service, and community building activities.  Their goal is to grow and develop leadership in the church and community. They meet one Friday a month at 6:30 PM.

Rite of Christian Initiation (R.C.I.A.)

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.) is the process by which people become members of the Roman Catholic Church.  The process is a faith journey in which those seeking baptism, those wishing to complete their initiation by Confirmation and Eucharist, including those baptized in another Christian Church, are welcomed and supported by the whole church community.  The stages of faith development are the preparation for receiving the sacraments at the Easter Vigil Mass.
