Children's Faith Formation

Children's Faith Formation

PJesus and children statuearents …you are the single greatest influence on the spiritual and religious life of your children. Nothing else even comes close.  If you live the faith inside and outside of your home, your children have the greatest opportunity to do the same.  Our Sunday School programs present the Scripture and traditions of the Catholic faith to educate children and build a strong relationship with Jesus Christ.  Our classroom programs use a variety of materials to catechize youth and provide information that will remain with them for a lifetime.
