Unless otherwise noted, all classes and family faith encounters are held immediately following the 8:30 Mass on Sunday.
Faith Formation Experiences for All Ages
Sunday Classes and Family Experiences
Between our Sunday Masses, we offer opportunities for families. Please come every Sunday. Most Sundays offer classes for Parents and Grades 1-10. Some Sundays offer faith experiences for the whole family together. Please register your family for the school year.
Preschool and Kindergarten
During the 11:00 Mass on most Sundays in Sept-May, your children age 4 through Kindergarten age are welcome in the Parish Hall for a faith learning experience. Please sign up for the school year, even if you only come sometimes.
High School & Confirmation
If a High School student is not confirmed, they are welcome in our 2-year Confirmation Preparation program. Please register, and attend classes on Sunday mornings at the Mercy College campus.
We invite our high school youth who have received Confirmation to gather with us on Family Faith Experience Sundays and to assist in a classroom with younger students on other Sundays. We also encourage you to be active in liturgical ministry or any of our Parish Life ministries. Our adults welcome your energy and ideas!

Please join us!
Would you like to volunteer with our children, teens or parents on some Sunday mornings during the year? This is a great way to share your love of God.
This program serves more than 100 families each year! We need more older teens and adults who might:
- team-teach a class as a catechist
- assist our catechists in the classroom
- offer hospitality
- help with Family Faith Experiences
- share a favorite faith topic with our parents
Volunteers are needed
Catechists, assistants and lots of occasional helpers are needed! Our goal is a large enough team to support our 100+ families well - even with some people gone on some weekends. Contact Theresa Lewis to learn more.
