Catechetical Formation for Junior High (Grades 7-8):  These two years provide an opportunity to deepen what has been learned in prior years.  The junior high model for formation is not classroom based but follows a youth ministry model of formation events and reflection.


G.R.A.C.E. Sacramental

These sessions are for those preparing for First Eucharist, Reconciliation and Confirmation.


High School Youth Ministry

We approach catechetical formation for high school age teens from a youth ministry model. We want them to be at home in the parish and all that happens in the parish, but also gather with other teens periodically, plan some of their own events, go on retreats with teens from other parishes, and take responsibility for helping each other grow in faith.

We are proud to announce that we now have a new youth ministry website! You can find it at  This website will have events, blogs, videos, and other resources for our youth and their families!


Adult Formation

Offerings include but not limited to Scripture Studies, Parish Missions, seasonal programs, book discussions, Men’s Scripture and Prayer Group, Women’s Scripture Reflection, and movie reviews. The primary focus for Adult Formation, as for all parish formation, is the monthly G.R.A.C.E. session.

Parish Library

The parish has built a collection of materials for adults and children that are available to parish members.
