Our program goals are:

              • To teach Jesus Christ, our Savior and Model of Christian life.
              • To lead the students to develop a deep life of prayer. 
              • To prepare students for the reception of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist, and Confirmation.
              • To support parents in their role as primary educators of their children.

Mass Attendance:  Attendance at Mass is required every Sunday as part of our faith formation program.  Parents must attend Mass with their children at the 10:30 AM Mass immediately following class. All students will be escorted to the Church at 10:15am to attend the 10:30am Mass.  We ask for you to meet them in the Church and you can sit together as a family. Your child will receive their own envelopes to use each Sunday as a way of keeping attendance for Mass. 

Three options are offered:  good works, prayers or their own personal donation.

Prayer/Devotion begins at home  Parents are the primary educators of their children in the faith.  We are here to assist you in their faith formation.  Please keep faith ALIVE at home! Pray with your children every day! Talk to them about their classes.  Go to Mass each Sunday.  Practice living the joy of the Gospel at home! 

Los padres son los primeros educadores de sus hijos en la fe. Estamos aquí para asistirle en la formación de su fe. Por favor, mantenga viva la fe en casa! Recen juntos con sus hijos todos los días! Hablen con ellos acerca de sus clases y asistan a la Santa Misa cada domingo. Vivan con la alegría del Evangelio en el hogar.

Todos los estudiantes recibirán su propia caja de sobres. Los sobres están numerados y fechados. Se requiere que cada estudiante use sus sobres cada domingo. Ellos tienen la opción de: un regalo monetario, un regalo de caridad o un regalo de oración.
