Growing the domestic church
This program helps children understand their faith and the Mass by studying upcoming Gospel readings. They’ll also learn Catholic Doctrine for a stronger and more loving spiritual foundation. It inspires faith and encourages daily practice, making them better members of their community.
Welcome to our sacrament prep program! We’ll empower & support you as parents to teach the Catholic Faith at home. Let’s work together to prep your child for their First Reconciliation & Holy Communion!
Welcome to our Confirmation program! We’ll work with you and your child for a year to deepen their faith. Parents help shape children’s spirituality, and we’re here to support you. Every month, parents will gather to explore a topic and share resources so you can teach and practice Church traditions at home. Together, we’ll give your child a strong spiritual foundation and help them grow closer to God. Thanks for joining us!
The content of this program flows from the Sunday Gospel, and children learn their faith within the rhythms of the liturgical year, Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, and Ordinary Time. Catholic Doctrine is included weekly. Each week will focus on the Gospel for the upcoming Sunday, giving more meaning and understanding to the proclaimed Gospel at Sunday’s Mass.
