Welcome to Elementary Faith Formation!
This program provides opportunities for children to grow in their faith through instruction in Catholic beliefs and Traditions, participation in prayer and an understanding of how to live their faith each day. Faith Formation is the best gift we can hand down to our children. At your child’s Baptism, each parent accepts the responsibility of training their child in the practice of the Faith. The Church teaches that the parent’s role in the formation of Christian values in their children is irreplaceable. Our program aims to assist in this responsibility of passing on the teachings of Jesus Christ revealed through His church.
Catechists provide an indispensable service to our children and their families by sharing their faith and giving their time to explain the teachings of the Catholic Church. As an additional benefit, catechists deepen their own faith through the experience of teaching it to others.

The Children’s Faith Formation Program provides all children with an awareness of God’s presence in their lives, an appreciation and understanding of what it means to be Roman Catholic in the world today – to include opportunities that encourage active discipleship in the community.
Catholic Relief Services, (CRS), rice bowls will be collected on Palm Sunday weekend, April 13th and April 14th. The rice bowls can also be brought to your child’s Faith Formation class – April 9th or April 10th.
The final class is Tuesday, May 14th or Wednesday, May 15th.
Please have your child bring a flower to their final class for the annual May Crowning followed by the traditional end-of-year pizza party.
“Let the risen Jesus enter your life, welcome him as a friend, with trust: He is life! If, up till now, you have kept Him at a distance, step forward. He will receive you with open arms. If you have been indifferent, take a risk: you won’t be disappointed. If following Him seems difficult, don’t be afraid, trust Him, be confident that He is close to you, He is with you and He will give you the peace you are looking for and the strength to live as He would have you do.” – Pope Francis
