Children's Faith & Spiritual Formation

Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW)

Children’s Liturgy of the Word is offered at 8:30 and 10:30 Mass from late September through mid-June.  This program allows children ages 4-12 the opportunity to leave the main assembly after the opening prayer and gather for a more age-appropriate, engaging proclamation and exploration of the Scriptures.

Sunday morning faith formation classes for children in grades preschool—5 will meet on Sundays from late September through June (excluding holidays). Classes are held from 9:30-10:20am in the Benincasa Center. We offer three classes: Preschool - K,  1st - 2nd grade,  and 3rd- 5th grade.  Classes begin on September 29th, 2019.

The younger children’s classes use a curriculum called Godly Play.  The teachers and children prayerfully and playfully explore parables, sacred stories, the sacraments, prayer and liturgy.

The older children’s class thoughtfully and creatively explore our faith through the use of a 3-year curriculum called “Finding God.”  They also participate in service projects throughout the year, as a hands-on way of living out their faith.

* IMPORTANT Note for First Grade Students:  All First Grade students who do not attend a Catholic School, and are planning to participate in First Communion in the Second Grade, are required by the Archdiocese to attend Sunday School Faith Formation classes during the First Grade.

Sacramental prep classes for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist are offered to children of appropriate age (at least second grade) who have completed the *required prerequiste faith formation classes.  

Please check the dates of classes, and note that attendance at ALL classes is mandatory in order for the child to receive these sacraments. Please also note the dates and times of the required parent meetings.

Children must receive the sacrament of Reconciliation before receiving their First Eucharist, so please make sure that your child attends ALL the necessary classes to prepare for both sacraments.

Register your child for Sacramental Preparation Classes
