Religious Education PS-5th Grade


St. Patrick Parish is taking to heart the central role parents play in their children’s faith growth.  Our goal is to assist them as they help their children understand both what we believe as Catholics and also how to live out those beliefs.  

The Office of Faith Formation offers three different options for Traditional Faith Formation for Pre-K through Grade 5.

Traditional Faith Formation is a  "traditional style classroom" led by Catechists willing to share their faith and faith-filled experiences.  Classes are held weekly from September—March.  If you are interested in volunteering as a helper in our Faith Formation program, please let us know.  Helpers are those interested in sharing the excitement of our faith.  All materials and supplies are provided.
 
 
Class Options are as follows: (Tentative calendar can be found at the bottom of this page)

Option 1:  SUNDAYS for 4yr old preschool thru Grade 5 from 9:45 am - 11:15 am

Option 2:  MONDAYS for Kindergarten thru Grade 5 from 5:45pm - 7:00pm
