Catechism for Children

The goal of religious education is to help the parish children to discover and experience God’s presence in their lives, through the on-going religious formation in the Roman Catholic tradition. We prepare the children for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Communion and Confirmation so they will experience new growth and receive the gift of God’s love.

Catechism Formation of Children is from level 1 to  Level 8.

  • Attending Mass after is encouraged, as it is a part of the faith formation, helping the children understand the Mass and challenging families to see Mass as the high point of the Christian life.
  • Prepare to receive the Sacraments of First Communion, First Reconciliation and Confirmation.
  • Familiarize the children with devotional prayers such as The Way of the Cross and Rosary.
  • Reconciliation for Grades 3 to 7 during Lent and Advent.
  • Christmas party to celebrate Jesus’ Birthday. (St. Nicholas Party)
  • Year end Barbeque and yard clean up if weather permits.
