Christian Formation - Enrichment Offerings

For People of All Ages

Parents are the primary instructors for their child(ren) in all aspects of life, including Christian  Formation.  Learning together is a wonderful way to share your faith with your child(ren) which is the most appropriate way to pass on the Catholic Tradition.

 A variety of programs are offered through our Christian Formation Office.  Different offerings will be available for all ages.  Some enrichments may only be appropriate for certain age groups.  Please note any enrichments that need a RSVP.

Enrichment Offerings for 2018-19 will be listed as they become available.
