Registration 2022-2023

The Office of Religious Education strives to develop a strong sense of faith and Catholic identity in the youngest members of our church through young adulthood. We aspire to cultivate personal relationships for each child with our Lord Jesus Christ. Through these means, each child will become a living missionary disciple of Christ whose character and life are witnesses to His sacred teachings in the Gospels.

Registration for sacramental Preperation, Faith Formation, and Confirmation classes will begin June 1st, 2022.
