“Helping children, young people and adults to get to know and love God more and more deeply, is one of the most beautiful educational adventures you can have.”
- Pope Francis
Children's faith education starts at the very beginning, in your homes, with parents sharing their spiritual heritage. Our commitment is to journey with parents, as they raise a generation of young people who know Christ and recognize Him in our Church: in the grace of the sacraments, in the prayers that are a part of our lives, and in the community that supports us in times of sorrow as well as joy.
Each parish is here to guide and support you as you walk on this journey. Through the many programs that are offered, we hope to inspire your family to be a place that helps your child become Catholic in not just what they do, but in who they ARE.
You'll find HERE some helpful information about the different stages of faith development.

“Family prayer has its own characteristic qualities. It is prayer offered in common, husband and wife together, parents and children together…by reason of their dignity and mission, Christian parents have the specific responsibility of educating their children in prayer, introducing them to gradual discovery of the mystery of God and to personal dialogue with Him…”
