Religious Education & Youth Ministry


Volunteer Opportunities

Family Program

First Sundays, 4:00-5:45pm

The Family Program aims to allow families to gather together for faith formation and to support parents in passing on their faith to their children. Each meeting will begin with a large group gathering that includes dinner. Small group gatherings will follow where parents meet together and children will meet by grade. Each small group will discuss the same catechetical topic and will explore the liturgical year.

Religious Education

Thursdays, 6:15-7:30pm

Volunteer for our Grade Based Program to teach classes for Kindergarten – Grade 6.
