Children's Faith Formation

9 AM Nursery and CLOW:  Due to the increase in COVID cases at parishes throughout the diocese, Nursery and CLOW will continue to be closed until further notice. We miss our little parishioners and are looking forward to providing child ministry. We pray the pandemic will be over soon and that you and your family are safe and well.

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.

Baptism Preparation Class

For parents who are expecting a baby or have a child under 7 years old and for godparents, must attend a pre-baptism class.  Please contact Carmela Wolf for dates.

Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) canceled until further notice

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.

Summer Bible Camp 

Is offered for children in Kindergarten through grade 5 each 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.
