After first Communion (Carl Frithjof Smith 1892)

Family of Faith is catechesis for the whole family, with parents utilizing the graces received upon their child’s baptism, to be the first educator of their children.

The first Sunday of each month will have a time of catechesis for the children with their catechists, while the parents will learn the essence of the monthly topic in the DeMazenod room.

We begin our program in the Fall, in the DeMazenod room by introducing the catechists and room assignments for each grade.  Class times are 9:30 – 10:45 am. Please note, because of the Diocesan guidelines, classes are being run virtually until further notice.

Please register online, beginning in end of Summer. When activated, find the registration link below or register in the parish office. Contact Stefanie Iwan for any questions about the program, payments or to fill out a paper registration:
