Catholic faith formation enables us to learn about our faith and grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ. It is a lifelong process, beginning in childhood and extending into adulthood. Programs embrace the Scriptures and attempt to integrate faith into our everyday lives, with the result that we will become witnesses of God's love to the world.
Faith education is available to our young people from kindergarten age to high school.
