In the Gospel of Matthew 19:14, Jesus says, “Let the children come to Me.”  As Catholics we know that our children need to be “formed” in the faith–not just educated; the only approach that makes sense is to lead the children to a relationship with Jesus Christ, our Lord.  The Catechism of the Catholic Church explains that the first and most important teachers of the faith are the parents.  Children have a way of knowing the difference between words and actions, which is why it is so important for parents to be grounded in the faith.

From our formal religious formation programs to ministries such as Greeting, to scouting, there are many opportunities for growth which can be seen on our Youth Formation Calendar.

We all need to keep growing in our faith–God is an Infinite Subject!

If your school age child is in need of sacraments of Baptism or First Holy Communion, check out our process for Children and Youth.

We encourage you to participate in the many offerings for family growth, especially those that encourage study of Sacred Scripture and Christian fellowship.


 Free “Youcat” course offered

The Newman Institute is offering a free online course which studies the new youth catechism of the Catholic Church called “Youcat”.  “Youcat” is designed to meet the needs of young people and families who wish to learn more about their faith.  The book is not large; has lovely images and almost a comic book style in which all kinds of interesting information is given about the faith.  The book retails around $20–a bargain. Pope Benedict XVI writes the Forward.
