Whole Family Catechesis

Whole Family Catechesis is our religious education program for families with elementary age children Kindergarten-6th grade, including sacramental prepartion-First Reconciliation, Confirmation and First Communion.

Our family faith approach engages parents and guardians and provides them with tools and skills to grow in their confidence and ablility to share our faith with their children. 

Sessions are on Tuesdays, 6:00-7:30pm and Wednesdays 5:30-7:00pm.

Parents/Guardians attend every 4th session along with their child(ren) for our Family + Faith Sessions.
