Formation is life long. There is no such thing as graduating from learning about the Faith. For this reason, we offer Monthly Enrichment Time (or “ME Time”) for adults and families rather than simply offering a children’s faith formation program. On a monthly basis, we will gather as a community in the school hall for prayer and snacks. Adults will remain in the hall for enrichment, while children will move to classrooms. Children will break up into age groups where catechists will engage in age appropriate lessons. (more info and FAQs)

Important Info for Parents!

  • If you have a child to prepare for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist, information was sent in April. Please contact us if you did not receive anything.
  • Children preparing for First Reconciliation / First Eucharist (typically Grade 2) need to be enrolled in Monthly Enrichment Time.
  • High School Youth are encouraged to serve as volunteers for ME Time. (Child Protection certification is needed)
  • Children must be accompanied at ME Time by at least one parent or legal guardian.
  • Childcare for ages 1 & 2, and a PreK 3 & 4 class are offered at no charge. Grade 8 has their own activities during this time, also no charge.
