The mission of our Faith Formation program is to provide empowerment and resources to the
families of our faith community toward the goal of forming the next generation of strong
Catholic Christians.

First Communion Project - Your Help is Needed!
Our children and youth are learning about the sacred vessels used during holy Mass, particularly the meaning and use of those used in relation to Holy Eucharist. If you enjoy oatmeal, you can be a great help to us by donating any empty 2lb. oatmeal containers. If oatmeal isn’t on your menu for breakfast, you may want to bake some cookies or donate the oatmeal to someone. We will need 25 containers, (all a 2lb size round container) by March 5th.  

We’ll invite you to see the finished masterpieces in the parish hall upon completion!

First Reconciliation has been scheduled for the following dates:
Saturday, February 25th, 9:45am-Noon
Saturday, March 4th, 9:45am-Noon
Saturday, March 11th, 9:45-Noon
The sacrament will be celebrated in the church.
Contact Trish for additional information.

FOR PARENTS:

THERE IS NO CURBSIDE DROP-OFF or PICK-UP EVER. It is a major safety concern. Any family that chooses to not follow this direction will be invited to use our home-based program instead of our in-person option.

ONLINE OPTION
For families with extraordinary circumstances that would prevent successful participation in our classroom setting, SEAS also offers a parent-led option that can be completed at home. If you would like to participate in the online option, please contact Trish in the parish office
for more information.

Interested in becoming more involved?  We can always use volunteers throughout the year!  Contact the Trish if you are interested in being a catechist, a substitute, a chaperone, or assisting with special projects/events.  Safe Environment training and a background check is required for all volunteers who work with children or youth.
