Children & Youth

Inform      Inspire      Ignite

The Mission of our Faith Formation Program is to invite our community, to engage each person, and together to step out on a journey to become closer to Christ. 

We aim to increase personal encounters with Christ, especially through the sacraments, making every effort to help youth know, love, and serve God and one another!

Our Faith Formation Program is guided by the Parish vision of becoming Christ for one another and the 6 Tasks of Catechesis:

  • Knowledge of the Faith
  • Liturgical Education
  • Moral Formation
  • Teaching to Pray
  • Education for Community Life
  • Missionary Initiation

We advocate parents teaching their children the faith.  Here are four basic practices to help:

  1. Pray with your kids (here is a link to help you get started: http://www.pbgrace.com/category/catholic-family-ways/praying/)
  2. Talk with your kids (here is a link to help you get started: http://www.pbgrace.com/category/catholic-family-ways/talking/)
  3. Serve with your kids (here are some links to help you get started: 5 Ways to Serve Others with Your Children, Serving Others: Teaching Your Children to Serve, 39 Ways to Serve with Your Kids)
  4. Celebrate grace with your kids (here is a link to help you get started: http://www.pbgrace.com/category/catholic-family-ways/celebrating/)
