The faith formation process begins with the parents as the primary educators of our children. As the children enter into a program of formal catechetical instruction, they continue to maintain their responsibility by supporting the goals and objectives of the program, participating and committing to their growth in the knowledge of their faith. Catechists and parents commit to each other in the spiritual growth of each phase of the program.
The program consists of three phases: elementary (preschool through fifth grade); Middle school (sixth grade through eighth grade) and young adult/youth ministry (ninth grade through twelfth grade). Children with special needs are provided religious education and Sacramental preparation.
Please contact Gloria Weaver, Catechetical Administrator, at 724-375-7940 for special needs requirements.
