Faith Formation Grades K - 5, Rainbow and Children's Liturgy of the Word

The church recognizes that parents are the first and best teachers of faith for their children. Our program offers support and structure to the formation that is happening at home. We strive to integrate the meaning and message of the Word of God, the development of a community of faith, the celebration of Liturgy and worship, and to promote a life of service and discipleship.
