Children – 3K -5th Grade

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, 11:30am-12:30pm and Tuesdays from 6-7pm.  Classes begin October 4/6 and go through the end of April.

We also have a virtual CF program this year for children in 3K-5th grade that involves work to be done at home each week and bi-monthly virtual class sessions that meet on Sundays from 4:30-5:30pm.
