Family Enrichment meets once a month. It is a chance for your whole family to come to Mass followed by a potluck supper. After supper we have a topic that we talk about as large group and then there is a hands-on activity for the families to do. These sessions usually run no later than 8:00pm

Sacrament Preparation will take place in March and April of 2021 Dates TBA
The Church recognizes that parents are the first and foremost teachers of the faith for their children. Catechists (teachers) are resources who work in partnership with parents in providing the information that helps parents provide the formation. Faith formation is a life-long process. It doesn’t end after the celebration of a sacrament or when a teen outgrows youth group. Faith formation is a personal journey that, often, is best shared with those around us, and what better way for parents to spend time with their children than in growing together in faith?
