Religious Education

We are transitioning to a family catechesis program to equip parents as the primary educators of passing on the faith to their children. 

Connecting Faith with Family Life

The first Tuesday of every month parents will meet to learn about the monthly topic while children (K-8) receive instruction from their catechist. There will be an at-home lesson with activities to be completed each month to incorporate the Catholic faith into daily family life. Later in the month, we will have a community night for the whole family to enrich the faith and build community!

Sacramental Preparation

As part of sacramental preparation, parents are required to attend one Family of Faith Night per month while their child attends sacramental preparation with their catechist twice a month. Sacramental preparation years are 2nd Grade and 8th Grade.

Get Involved


A Family of Faith provides encouragement and resources for catechizing the whole family and helping parents lead their children to Heaven. In addition to the monthly whole family catechesis, families also come together as a community for enjoyable events such as picnics, feast day celebrations, and fun activities.


Become a catechist and share your faith in our family catechesis, RCIC, or RCIA ministry.

For those who enjoy hospitality or event planning, share your talents and help build community for our Family of Faith gatherings. Please contact Robin Welsh if you would like to be a part of implementing our plan.
