What kind of programs do you have for children’s formation?

  • For ages 3 to 5th grade we have the Catechesis of the Good Shephard, a montessori based approach to the religious formation of children.  The children are divided into three learning groups: 3 through kindergarten, 1st through 3rd grade and 4th & 5th grade.
  • For 6th and 7th graders we have Rite 13, which focuses on forming and nuturing a Christian community, and helping youth explore and affirm their gifts and creative powers.
  • For 8th and 9th graders we have J2A, Journey to Adulthood, to help young people learn skills for faithful living. At the end of the 2nd year of this program the kids go on a pilgrimage.
  • For 10th – 12th graders we have Young Adults in Church (YAC), which encourages young adults to be part of all areas of parish life.

Is there a Youth Group?
Yes the youth group for 9th – 12 graders meets Sunday nights in the Great Hall to make dinner and for fellowship.  Please join us!
