The dates and times are:

Current Home Study families (grades 1 through 6) will have the Parent Meetings at their May Follow Up Gathering.
You only have to attend one meeting!
Registration for all 2020/2021 Faith Formation programs will take place at the beginning of May; the date will be announced at the Parent Meetings. Each family is expected to be represented at one of these meetings if they have children entering grades 1 through 8 this September. These meetings will provide you with the first-hand information about all the Faith Formation programs/happenings. Registration materials will not be posted on the website and will not be mailed; all registration materials are distributed at one of the meetings. If your only child is currently enrolled in the 8th grade Faith Formation program, you DO NOT have to attend one of these meetings .
Enrollment in our Faith Formation Program is offered to all registered parishioners who participate in the sacramental life of the church and, most especially, Sunday Eucharist. The Program is open to all Parish children in Kindergarten through Grade 8 who are not in Catholic School.
Our goal is to work together to form a partnership dedicated to the faith formation of your child and your family. Faith Formation happens first within the family. The Rite of Baptism calls parents to commit to “raising children in the practice of the faith”, which affirms that parents are the first and most important teachers of the Catholic faith. Through this commitment, our children and families will continue to develop a greater love for God and Church and our Faith Formation programs will continue to support what goes on in the home. Besides attending Faith Formation sessions, it is essential that your family participate in Mass weekly. All these experiences give the children/family the opportunity to build their faith, grounded in God’s love, family experiences, and the witness of others and is brought to fruition as we celebrate as a parish family of faith during the Eucharist.
