Faith Formation & Youth Ministry
We are so excited to start up our Faith Formation and Youth Ministry Programs. This year it will look a little different since we are still practicing social distancing to keep our communities safe and will not be able to meet in person. So, parents will be taking a more central role in their children's formation.

Faith Formation (Grades K-6th)
We are excited to announce we will be using Pflaum Gospel Weeklies this year. This is a Lectionary Based curriculum so it uses the Sunday readings as a basis to learn doctrine, sacraments, commandments, and prayer all with in the liturgical calendar.
Youth Ministry (Grades 7th-12th)
Since we cannot meet in person I will be hosting weekly Zoom sessions to connect and learn. In addition I am looking at putting together a weekly bible study where we will study the coming Sunday's reading. I am also exploring other options to continue teaching our students.
