 CCD

​Faith Formation classes are open to public school children of the parish who are in first through eighth grade. Our program builds a foundation for living the Catholic life by helping the child to grow in holiness; to develop a relationship with God; to grow in the knowledge of and thereby foster a personal relationship with Jesus Christ; to know the teachings of the church; and how, through the power of the Holy Spirit, Jesus works in and through the sacraments.

The diocesan policy for reception of the sacraments of reconciliation and first Eucharist is that they are conferred in second grade. A prerequisite is that your children must be actively involved in our parish faith formation program or enrolled in a Catholic School in First Grade.

If your are interested in having your child(ren) participate in Faith Formation for the 2018-19 school year, please print and complete the registration form and return it to the parish office.

 Liturgy of the Word for Children

Celebration of the Liturgy of the Word for Children occurs during our 11:00 a.m. Mass. Liturgy of the Word for Children begins with the children being called forward after the opening prayer and then dismissed from the assembly. They gather in a special room to hear the word of God proclaimed to them on their own level, followed by a time of reflection, which opens the children to the good news of Jesus' love for them.

The children also respond to a profession of faith and the prayers of the faithful. The children then return to the assembly in time for the celebration of the Liturgy of the Eucharist.

Liturgy of the Word for Children is a liturgical experience for the children and not a religious education opportunity. All children ages 5 through 11 are welcome to participate. No sign up is necessary.
