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 3 years old through 12th 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 (see below) to best meet each family’s needs.
