Our Faith Formation program is designed to support families in being active missionary disciples at home, at school, and in the parish. Our K through 8th grade classes are designed to help parents prepare their children to live the sacramental life of the Church. Specifically, grades 1 & 2 focus on preparation for First Communion, and grades 7 & 8 focus on preparation for Confirmation.

First Communion

First Communion is a two-year preparation process. Attendance in Faith Formation classes for year 1 and year 2 of the program is required. Years 1 and 2 are typically taken in 1st and 2nd grade.
