Family Faith Formation (SALT - Serving And Learning Together)

Serving And Learning Together Schedule

This past April, our parish embarked on a new journey toward a better partnership with parents to help them build

Strong Catholic Families: Strong Catholic Youth

Input gathered at our inaugural event has helped shape this year’s schedule and blending of catechist-led sessions and parent-led home formation. Two consecutive weeks per month, the parish will host catechist-led sessions for children 4 yrs. - 8th grade. Parents will receive materials to help with faith discussions and activities in the home or car the other weeks of the month, Sept—April.

The SALT-At-Home Option is still available for parents who work weekends or have other obligations that prevent their children attending catechist-led sessions.
