All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children. - Isiah 54:13

Faith Formation
Youth Group

Our Faith Formation programs serve K-8th graders in the greater Converse County area.  Scheduled throughout the school year, with summers off, our staff of volunteers assist students with learning the history and beauty of our Catholic traditions and the Liturgy of Scripture as prescribed by the most Holy Church.  Click Here for More Information.

First Communion

Middle School Youth group uses the EDGE program, led by a group of trained core team members.  The High School youth group offers a dynamic program too. The program utilizes media, readings, and group discussions to create and deepen relationships our youth have with Christ.  


If your child is in 2nd Grade they will be invited to participate in the Sacrament of the First Holy Communion.  As well any children or students in our Faith Formation classes who have not yet participated are invited to attend specific classes in preparation for participation at the Lord's Table.  More information can be gleaned from the Parish Office or by emailing our director of Ministries.  

Confirmation in the Catholic Church usually happens in early Middle School for our students.  Likewise if your student has not yet been confirmed in the Catholic Church and would like to do so, specific classes for preparation can be completed for the sacrament.  More information is available in the Parish Office or by emailing our Director of Religious Education.
