CF 3K-5th Grade Children

Christian Formation for Children

We welcome all children, beginning in 3K, into our Christian Formation programming.  Christian Formation is a wonderful way to introduce your child to our faith, and is a necessary component in order to receive sacraments.

Christian Formation classes for 3K, 4K & 5K are offered on Sundays from 8:15-9:15am.  Classes for 1st-5th grade are offered on Sundays from 9:30-10:30 am and Tuesdays from 6-7pm.  Classes are held from September through April.
