“Catechesis is an essentially ecclesial act” —an action of the Church: The true subject of catechesis is the Church which, continuing the mission of Jesus the Master and, therefore animated by the Holy Spirit, is sent to be the teacher of the faith. The Church imitates the Mother of the Lord in treasuring the Gospel in her heart. She proclaims it, celebrates it, lives it, and she transmits it in catechesis to all those who have decided to follow Jesus Christ. This transmission of the Gospel is a living act of ecclesial tradition.

Welcome to Our Faith Formation Program web page
The object of catechesis is communion with Jesus Christ. Catechesis leads people to enter the mystery of Christ, to encounter him, and to discover themselves and the meaning of their lives in him. “At the heart of catechesis we find, in essence, a Person, the Person of Jesus of Nazareth, ‘the only Son from the Father… full of grace and truth,’ who suffered and died for us and who now after rising, is living with us forever.”
Our program is a Faith Formation program. This means that your child can come to Faith Formation classes once they start First grade and continue through the 12th grade. Faith is a journey that starts at Baptism and ends when we meet Christ in heaven.
This is why we encourage parents to bring their children to the Faith Formation classes even if they have celebrated their Sacraments, they can come to Continue their Faith Formation journey.
