Faith Formation for Children

Our Faith Formation programs here at St. Patrick's exists to assist you in your role as parents and guardians in your children’s ongoing faith formation, as well as to help you keep the solemn promises you made before God on the day they were baptized.  It is our goal to provide you with the support and means necessary to raise your children as strong Catholics in today’s world. Here at St. Patrick's, we offer weekly Faith Formation classes that will prepare your children to receive the Sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Holy Communion and Confirmation along with the opportunity to continue to deepen their faith and to grow in their relationship with the Lord.
