2024-2025 Faith Formation Program Registration

Classes for the 2024-2025 school year will be offered as follows:

Option 1: In-Person, Wednesdays for Grades 1-8, 4:30 pm – 5:45 pm – We are no longer accepting registration for the 8th Grade class option. Please register for the later session.
Option 2: In-Person, Wednesdays for Grades 1-8, 6:15 pm – 7:30 pm

Classes will be capped at 12 students. If enrollment is low for any grade level, we may consider combining classes. Registration links are at the bottom of this page.

*Note: two years of preparation is required for a sacrament. For example, if a child plans to make their First Communion in 2nd grade (typical grade), they need to be enrolled in 1st and 2nd grade religion classes. If a child plans to make their Confirmation in 8th grade (typical grade), they need to be enrolled in 7th and 8th grade religion classes.

Families with children who need to catch up on missed sacraments should contact the faith formation office to find out more about tailoring the process/program to their family’s needs.

If you were on a payment plan or received financial assistance last year, this is not automatically set up for next year. You must contact the office to re-apply. 

WANTED! Catechists, Leaders, & Volunteers

Adults, Young Adults, Teen Catechists, and Leaders are always needed in all areas of the Religious Education Program. 

Religious education plays a critical role in young people’s spiritual growth and development. By becoming a catechist or volunteer, you have the opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of children and youth in your community. You can help them develop a deeper understanding of their faith, build character, and provide a strong moral foundation that will serve them well throughout their lives.

Becoming a catechist or volunteer allows you to grow in your faith. Teaching others about your beliefs and values can help you gain a deeper understanding of your spirituality. It can also provide you with a sense of purpose and fulfillment as you work to share your faith with others.

We understand that many may be hesitant to volunteer because they are not confident in their teaching ability or lack knowledge. We assure you that we will provide adequate training and support to help you succeed. We offer training sessions on effective teaching techniques and provide resources like lesson plans, activity ideas, discussion questions, service projects, and service opportunities. The Faith Formation department is here to support you every step of the way. Please contact us if you are interested, and we will find a spot for you!
