Religious Education

The Faith Formation Program aims to deepen the faith of those being taught to enable them to “hear” the message of hope and to help them spread God’s love through life and service.

Sacramental preparation classes for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion are held in 2nd grade, and for Confirmation in 8th grade.

Volunteers
