Registration FOR THE YEAR 2021-2022 To Come

We thank you for choosing our Parish community as your family's faith home!

As you all know, this coming year is already full of challenges because of the pandemic. As a result, our Faith Formation programs will look different. Here is what your family’s formation will be like:

• Faith Formation and Sacramental Preparation will take place at home, as a family.

• Our office will provide you with all the resources that you will need. The Catechetical programs we will use are Alive in Christ and Faith Fusion. These programs provide all the tools necessary for Faith Formation at every grade level from elementary through middle school grades. Visit Alive in Christ and Our Sunday Visitor for more information.

• These materials will be available to you in both, physical and virtual forms.

• Mass will be part of your family’s formation. You can either attend in person, or on our website. Prayer Journals will be provided for you family to reflect upon every Sunday scripture and homily. Entries to this journal will let us know that you are attending Mass.

• Your family will continue receive the support of our Faith Formation staff and volunteer Catechists.

• Also, families will be paired for mutual support and community building.

Liturgy of the Word for Children provides an opportunity for children to listen and reflect on the Sunday scripture readings each week. Children are dismissed from the main assembly and gather in the Youth Room of the Pastoral Center. The gospel and readings are proclaimed from the Lectionary for Masses with Children, guided by an adult leader. For more information or if you are interested in becoming a leader, please contact:
