FOR FAMILIES

How can the Parish support and assist parents as the First Teachers of the Faith, making our homes a "Domestic Church"? 

GATHER
Helps families grow in faith with support from the Parish and includes worship, fellowship, fun, and a relevant message just for families.
• Integrating Faith into the ordinary rhythms of life
• Sunday Mass
• Times of Prayer
• Helping children prepare for the Sacraments
• "Teaching" through conversation,'teachable moments' and not “class time" 

FOR STUDENTS

C.L.O.W.
(Children's Liturgy of the Word) - For those in grades K-4, this takes place during the Sunday Liturgy and helps families prepare children to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist.

“J” WALKERS
Provides a safe fun place for middle schoolers to find a solid Catholic community through small groups, to get answers to questions about faith, and most importantly to experience Jesus in a profound and personal way.

PATHFINDERS
High Schoolers will continue to grow in faith with their small groups and experience Jesus through service to others.
