Religious Formation

Brothers and Sisters of the Parish,

            Since ancient times, one of the most important ministries of a parish community is to help prepare Candidates for the reception of the sacraments of either Baptism, First Reconciliation and First Communion and/or Confirmation.  Below is the basic information you need regarding fees and requirements.  A registration cannot be accepted unless all documents and fees are brought in at the same time.  

            We obtain new textbooks and bibles for the candidates.  We use a quality program from Loyola Press for First Communion and Confirmation.  Loyola Press materials are Jesuit-based in their spirituality and content.  Pope Francis, as you know, is a Jesuit priest.

*Registrations will begin July 1st, 2021 for the 2021-2022 Formation Year

Monday– Thursday 10:00am to 7:00pm, Fridays 10:00am to 5:00pm, Saturdays by appointment only.

Please Contact our Religious Formation Director, Mrs. Erika Castro if you have any questions.
