If you make my word your home, you will indeed be my disciples, you will learn the truth and the truth shall make you free. [John 8: 31-32]
Religious Education embraces the study, instruction, and reflection essential for Christian growth. The goal is to design the path for a walk by faith for children and adults, and for personal transformation through the spirit of God.
This study of God’s word gives knowledge of God, of man, salvation, sanctification, the Church, and living life abundantly.
This class is studying the Letters of St. Paul, particularly his Letters to the Romans, the Galatians and the First Letter to the Corinthians.
Confraternity of Christian Doctrine (CCD) provides Catholic religious education for children who are not currently attending Catholic schools. We urge parents to enroll their children in CCD.
Instruction is tailored to the age levels of the children beginning with Tiny Tots (ages 3 and 4), and Kindergarten through eighth grade. Their catechetical instruction is adapted to the age of the children and their spiritual progress.
CCD: Volunteers are needed in various areas, including assisting in teaching our Christian doctrine to the students.
Vacation Bible School: Volunteers of all ages are needed for a 1 week day camp in June. Volunteers guide children through faith-filled music, skits and activities that teach children about Catholic faith and strengthen their relationship with Jesus.
Everyone is invited to participate and experience the spiritual nourishment that occurs through scripture readings and contemplative prayer.
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults assists interested men and women seeking more information about Catholicism to discover its roots and continue along their journey of faith. This includes those who have never been baptized, those baptized in other Christian faiths, and baptized Catholics who have not received First Holy Communion or Confirmation.
With the help of sponsors and through experiences involving the whole community, the process leads to the sacraments of Initiation and full Communion with the Church at the Easter Vigil Liturgy on Holy Saturday.
This program is an interactive men’s program focused on the development of men in the modern world. It combines the best research from science with the teachings of the Catholic faith and the wisdom of the saints to transform themselves, their families and the greater society.
The program is divided into two 13 week sessions. The fall session emphasizes the development of the Scriptural vision of man, especially in his relationship to his family and society, while the spring session emphasizes the practical means of becoming that man.
