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 the principles of Catholicism, 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.
