Sacrament Preparation for 1st Communion & 1st Reconciliation

All children who have been baptized and are in the second grade or older are invited to prepare for the sacraments of Reconciliation (Confession) and First Eucharist (First Communion). 

Sacrament of Reconciliation: Preparation classes are offered in the fall for children in second grade or older.

Sacrament of Eucharist: Preparation classes are offered in the spring for children in second grade or older who have already celebrated the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

 

Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) classes resume in September!

Children in grades Pre-K-4 are invited to participate during the 9:30 am Mass. Children hear the Readings from the Children’s Lectionary and participate in activities to help them better understand the Scriptures. The program is held from September to May.

CLOW is not religious education; rather it is another way for our young parishioners to experience the Mass. Children do not need to register to attend. For religious education, we invite you to register in any of our Faith Formation Programs.

Vacation Bible Camp 

Is offered for children in Kindergarten through grade 5 each in the summer. 

Advent & Lenten Family Retreat

Family Retreats are held during Advent and Lenten, this has become a wonderful tradition for families to gather together and begin their journey. Whether you are a family of 2 parents and kids; grandparents and kids; single parent and kids; etc. this is a great opportunity for you to bring faith into your family life. 

We will have crafts, snacks, music, and lots of fun – as we learn about and celebrate our wonderful traditions. All are welcome. 

 

The parish is the center of faith formation for Catholics. Every person in your pews, every Catholic in your parish community…child or adult…is on their own journey toward Christ and a life of discipleship.
