Faith Formation

Schedule and Cirriculum update for 2020-2021

For the safety of all our families, all classes will be held virtually through Google Classroom and/or Zoom. While we hope to provide in-person opportunities to all students throughout the year, these activities will be optional and will not be part of the class schedule for Sacramental Preparation this year. Due to the pandemic preventing us from gathering in person, attending mass is the best way to gather as a community.

We are working hard in this unique situation to creatively evangelize and form the domestic church. Our staff and team are excited & looking forward to kicking off the 2020-2021 year with YOU!
