Youth Faith Formation (aka YFF aka CCD aka Sunday School) meets on Sunday mornings from September through May from 10:45am-12:15pm, nestled in between the 9:30am and 12:30pm Masses for the convenience of your family.
All youth from four years of age through eighth grade are welcome to participate. Here we believe that it is important to learn about God and our Catholic faith and to also develop a relationship with our Lord and our brothers and sisters in Christ. We seek to be a community that prays, learns, and grows together.
YFF uses the We Believe by Sadlier as our base for elementary school youth and a variety of cutting edge resources like Chosen, Altaration, Encounter, and Decision Point for middle school. Classes are not simply reading out of a textbook, however—we believe that our God is not boring, neither should learning about the Lord and our Catholic Christian faith! It is our goal from Pre-K through Confirmation that youth encounter Christ through methods that are engaging, interactive, and build community in all of our classes. Our faith is alive!!
YFF is also the primary mode of catechesis for children attending public school who want to pursue receiving the sacraments of Communion, Penance, and Confirmation. Two years of formation is the typical requirement prior to the reception of these sacraments. We also have a special program available for families with older youth who still need to receive these sacraments.
All new parents participate in La Familia in the fall, a 6-8 week parent formation group that meets while the kids are in class. Returning parents are welcome to participate as well!
Adult and Teen Volunteers are needed! All volunteers must go through a Level II FBI fingerprinting & background screening and safe environment training.
