Live a Life of Faith, Understanding and Love.
Every year we have about 600 children and teens enrolled in Faith Formation. Kids come to church after school to make friends, have fun and learn about our Catholic faith. This is not just sacrament preparation; it is for every year from age 3 through high school. Church is fun and amazing the more we learn about Jesus!
For children age 3 through kindergarten, during Sunday mass at 9:00am and 11:00am. Children enrolled in Little Church gather to make friends and learn about God and our Catholic faith in a preschool style environment through stories, prayer, songs, crafts and snacks.
This is a coop style ministry; parents help about four times a year. This ‘helping’ is a beautiful opportunity to meet other parents and your child’s friends.
For children in grades 1 through 5 where ‘sparks’ of faith turn into hearts on fire for Jesus! Lessons are written and prepared by our wonderful Faith Formation Coordinators, sessions are taught by parent volunteers. We provide training and mentoring to ensure you are comfortable and everyone is enriched and having a good time.
These kids, grades 6, 7 and 8, have a blast reading scripture, playing, praying and being crazy.
They have an equal focus on bible study and building community with one another. The name is from the gospel of John 3:16! Three:Sixteen is completely run by our team with a couple of parents by our side.
High school teens meet weekly to make connections, share their insights and concerns, and grow in faith. They gather with young adult small group leaders and our Youth Minister. The name is from the first book of Timothy.
First Reconciliation and First Communion
After a minimum of two consecutive years of the whole family participating in Faith Formation, children in grades 1 through 8 who are ready to receive their First Reconciliation (Confession) and First Communion, attend two half day retreats with their parents to prepare for these holy sacraments
This two year process for high school teens includes Sunday sessions, hands on ministry, large and small group faith sharing, community events, retreats and service experiences that all culminate in receiving the sacrament and living a Catholic life.
