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.
In-person 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 9:30-10:30am and Tuesdays from 6-7pm. Classes for the 2021-2022 CF year will begin September 19th/21st and go through April 10th/12th.

Sacramental Preparation: First Reconciliation & First Eucharist
These sacraments are traditionally celebrated in second grade, although we welcome children who may be out of sequence. Children will prepare for these sacraments through participation in weekly Christian Formation classes, our GIFT family program or our virtual formation program, as well as two parent/child retreats. There is a sacramental fee of $55 that covers the cost of textbooks & other materials, as well as the two retreats.
