Religious Education

Wednesday Night Youth Program

Faith formation is an essential part of learning and personal growth.  While parents are the primary educators of their children, including when it comes to faith, as a parish we assist parents in their children's faith formation.  Our WNYP is open to students in grades K-8th Grade.  Sessions for 2020-2021 will be held in the home consisting of virtual meetings with a catechist (Z) and in-home activities (H).
