Registration for Discipleship Classes (formerly known as Faith Formation) and Parish Family Gatherings for 2019-2020 will open soon. You will be able to register online, or pick up a form from the parish office or the kiosk in the narthex. Don’t forget that everyone is invited to Parish Family Gatherings, not just families with kids!
Our Department of Discipleship endeavors to create a culture of lifelong faith formation which empowers parents, families, and individuals to live their call to holiness and discipleship.
Discipleship Classes: General Information
We offer a variety of religious education classes for children and youth age three years old through twelfth grade to assist parents in echoing the Catholic faith and sharing the Good News of the Gospel with their children. It is the expectation of the Church that we continue to grow in faith throughout our lives. We offer several options at various times to best meet each family’s needs.
