     Your child’s faith formation ultimately depends on the sharing of your faith with them by going to Mass on Sundays and living Christian values at home. It is through your efforts and example, more than anything else, that your children will come to know Jesus and grow in their faith. We thank you for allowing us to help you in this process. We look forward to working with you and your children.


The success of our Faith Formation Program depends on your generosity as a volunteer.
