LIFELONG FAITH FORMATION

 

“We are a Faith Family; Let us Practice Together"

Our goal is to help our children and their families to learn about their faith, to live their faith and above all to LOVE their faith.

The Lifelong Faith Formation program provides:

  • Faith learning for children in Kindergarten thru 10th Grade.
  • Sacramental preparation for children making 1st Reconciliation, 1st Holy Communion & Confirmation & Childrens RCIA
  • Family Mass the 1st Sunday of Every Month unless otherwise noted.

Attention all Grades Kindergarten thru 10th - Its PENNY DRIVE Time!!! :

  • Starting Sunday January 17, 2018 (grades 7-10) and January 21, 2018 (grades K-6) we will begin our Annual Penny Drive which will continue thru March 11, 2018. This event lets Father Damain help those in need right here in our parish. Every PENNY COUNTS! This is a great team building event for each grade. The students learn to work together to bring in the most money for their class and at the same time they are taught how they are helping those less fortunate then themselves. They also learn that even a penny is worth something! So save your pennies and remember the nickels, dimes and quarters!!

  • WE REALLY NEED ALTAR SERVERS: Our Parish needs our youth to consider becoming Altar Servers to help serve at the LORD'S TABLE! Any one who  has made their 1st Communion or is in 3rd Grade is eligible to become a server. Deacon John Hendricks will now oversee the Altar Servers and with the help of Mrs. Koreen Scalfaro; handle the scheduling.  We are taking a different approach and offering everyone a preference to the Mass they would like to be scheduled for. So wont you consider participating at the Lord's Table!!! Thanks to the following students Avery & Matthew Smolarek who have answered the call to "Serve at the Lord's Table" BUT we still need help for the 4pm Masses.  Please consider joining!!
