• Little Church "Little Church" - Sunday Morning Preschool-Kindergarten
     The Little Church programs offer children ages 3 through 5 the opportunity to learn about God in a developmentally appropriate way during the 9:00 a.m. Mass.  Their faith experience is presented through stories, music, prayer, and art within the structure of a published Catholic curriculum, while parents and family members attend Mass. 
     
    Grades 1st through 8th
    These classes are offered to assist parents in fulfilling their responsibility as the primary educators of faith formation for their children who do not attend Catholic schools. Classes in grades 1st through 5th are available from late September through May, dependent on volunteer catechists. Students in grades 6th through 8th attend classes twice a month on pre-determined Sundays.

During the preparation process, students, along with their parents, who are committed to participation in this journey of faith, experience the reception of the sacraments on one of the Sundays during the Easter season.
