Religious Education

The Office of Religious Education guides continuing education for parishioners of all ages. Providing continuing education within the parish enables us to grow in the knowledge of God and to develop spiritual lives. Various programs facilitate this growth and development; they include: Pre CANA (marriage preparation), Infant Baptism Preparation, Faith Formation, RCIA (sacrament preparation for adults), Youth Groups, and Adult Education programs.

  • Volunteer Opportunities for all ages
  • Children's Ministry (ages 6 months to 5 years)

  • GIFT [Gathering in Faith Together] (program for families and children grades 3-6)
  • Confirmation Program  -  2 year program  
  • Junior High Youth Ministry (students in grades 7 and 8)
