Faith Formation

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.  
Youth

Faith education is available to our young people from kindergarten age to high school.  

    Elementary grades (K–5) and Middle Schoolers (6–8) meet between the masses on Sunday mornings, from 9:15 am to 10:15 am. Curricula are lectionary-based, reinforcing the Sunday readings.

     Classes are held from October through April.​  Classes for the 2023–2024 school year will begin at 9:15am on Sunday, October 1 for grades K–8. 

    Confirmation preparation begins for most students when they reach 9th grade. Instruction begins in the fall and continues to the following autumn. Classes are held on Sunday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. Start date for Fall 2023 will be announced soon.

     The 2023 Confirmation class will receive the sacrament on Saturday, November 11, 2023, at St Mark Church in Westbrook. Check the Confirmation 2023 page for important information and updates.

  

     Vacation Bible School is a one-week morning camp for children ages 5 to 10, held during early August. The Bible-themed camp includes activities, games, arts & crafts, singing, and more.
