 Religious Education Calendar

Go to the Faith Formation menu page to view

the Family Calendar and the Preschool Calendar for 2019.

This year the Education Commission will focus on adult education or enrichment that will concentrate on the role of the domestic church: the family unit. The Catholic Church counts on the parents and grandparents of our children to develop faith in their children and recognizes parents as the primary educators of their children.                

Four programs will be offered. Though they target parents and grandparents, all parishioners are welcome. The programs will be offered on Monday nights DURING THE RELIGIOUS EDUCATION SESSION in the church. Parents may attend at the same time that their children are in religious formation classes.      

The first presentation, Passing on the Faith, was presented on Monday, October 14, at 6:15.

On Tuesday, November 19, our Religious Education Confirmation candidates received the Sacrament from Bishop Robert Fisher at a special 7 PM Mass to which the Parish was invited.
