Assignments are due each month with all assignments for the year due by the end of April in order to receive religious education credit and a certificate of completion for the year. 

Children's Liturgy of the Word

The Directory for Masses with Children recognizes the difficulties children face as they attempt to participate in liturgical celebrations, whose words and symbols speak effectively only to persons of considerable maturity. We are again happy to offer Children’s Liturgy of the Word during the 11:00 a.m. Mass. The children leave Mass during the Liturgy of the Word (about 15 minutes), and return during the offertory. We are currently staffing this program which will soon begin again.

Adult Faith Formation

With ongoing conversion, there needs to be ongoing adult faith formation. More specifically, the disciple of Christ is continual need of revealed truth and life-giving grace. This is why the U.S. Bishops remind us that "adult faith formation must become our chief catechetical priority." Please consult the bulletin for opportunities.
