We have a serious duty to provide for the catechism of all of our members and especially to support and assist our parents as the primary and principal educators of their children in faith and in Christian living. What a gift you give your children by teaching them about Jesus Christ and his love! We are here to assist you in this most important work.
The very act of celebrating the joyful occasion of First Communion reveals our belief in the True Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. We should not take for granted receiving the Eucharist for Jesus comes to us in a unique way as we receive him into our body and soul. This is the source and summit of our faith: it is the body, blood, soul and Divinity of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We are so glad to help your child prepare for this Blessed Sacrament.
The most important faith formation you can give your child is attending Mass as a family. Children need to attend Mass as much as adults do, because they too need the graces that Jesus offers us through Holy Mass. Once a month Fr. Vitor has a special homily directed at the younger children.
Middle School and high school students are given opportunities to develop competence, a sense of belonging and meaning. Our adult leaders try to build relationships so that they can better connect with your kids and making this "their" church community. Student's leadership potential can be developed through lector opportunities, altar serving, volunteering, choir and Parish Council. We'd like to help bring out our students' gifts and abilities.
