Faith Formation provides religious instruction and faith activities to public school children and youth from preschool through grade 10.
Through instruction and activities, we seek to support and encourage students, to help them see themselves through the eyes of a loving God, in a comfortable, friendly and safe environment. The Faith Formation team accomplishes this mission through the work of parish staff members, the service of many dedicated volunteers and the commitment of faithful parents and students.
Our program promotes a close relationship with God through the gifts of His presence in scripture, sacraments, and people; and offers a Catholic information blueprint for our youth to use as they build their faith through adulthood. Instruction and events for young people are based on Holy Scripture and Catholic Doctrine handed down by the Holy See and the Catholic Magisterium.
Faith instruction begins each week with dinner served in the O’Gara Social Hall from 5:30 – 6:00. Classes then break out into the elementary grades at St. Dominic School and the middle school grades at the church. All parishioners are invited to dinner, which is funded through free-will donations.
