Faith Formation

WELCOME

The Faith Formation Office supports the religious education and sacramental preparation needs of all our parishioners.

Faith Formation Registration is Open!

Faith Formation Classes will BEGIN September 19, 2021, for Grades  1st– 6th after the 9 am mass in the Upper Hall.

Parent Night will be at 6 pm on September 9th. Registration forms will be available on this night. 

Come hear about the plans to develop St. James Youth Group, for Grades 7-11th, during our Parent Night on September 7th at 6:30 pm in the  Upper Hall. We will begin meeting on September 19th in the Upper Hall after the  11 am mass to discuss an 8-part study on the Theology of the Body for teens with Bill Donahue from the TOB Institute. The youth group will incorporate Confirmation students and will reflect on the words of St. John Paul II on the dignity of the human person. Confirmation students will register at a later time after having discerned, studied and had opportunities of service within the life of the parish.

Registration/enrollment has ended on September 14th. All families must be registered active members of the parish. All candidates for first communion (second grade) must present a copy of their baptismal certificate at the time of enrollment/registration. If you still need to register for this year’s Faith Formation program, please contact the Parish Office.
