Programs for Children

Passing on faith is one of a parent's most important roles.   A child's first experience of God's love and our Catholic, Christian faith happens in the "Domestic Church" -- the home.  Our parish offers a variety of programs for children that build on the foundation provided at home.  These programs help children grow in their understanding and appreciation of our faith and develop a personal relationship with Jesus.
