Let’s have a blessed and wonderful Faith Formation Process.
 

Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.”
Matthew 28:19-20

As a Catholic community, we are obligated to provide our children with opportunities for on-going training and enrichment in the Catholic tradition. This formation is a lifetime journey that continues to enrich, nourish and guide us in our Catholic Christian heritage from childhood through adulthood.

Kindergarten to 8th grade

Our Sunday Program is scripture-based using the Loyola Press Finding God. With a catechist in each classroom, children will listen to stories from the Bible especially adapted for the student's grade. They will talk about the message; and discuss how it applies to their everyday lives and our Catholic traditions, according to our diocesan standards for religious faith formation. Visit the DSJ website or download a copy to learn more about those standards.
