Intentional Discipleship / Family Faith Formation
In times past, Family Faith Formation was known as Religious Education, a name that implies the conveying of information. Certainly there needs to be shared information, but Family Faith Formation is much more. Family Faith Formation goes beyond informing, to forming disciples, disciples who will take on the Mission of Jesus: To Love as He Loved. It is our goal that ALL will be transformed.

Sacrament of Confirmation: 8th Grade
The Church has always respected the sensus fidei of the faithful. Pope Francis writes, “As part of his mysterious love for humanity, God furnishes the totality of the faithful with an instinct of faith – sensus fidei – which helps them discern what is truly of God.” In consultation with parents and staff, we have decided to offer the sacrament of Confirmation to students at the end of their 8th grade year.
