Whatever your child's age,

what matters most is growing their faith.  

 

Our class goals will be the same for all ages--

to offer and remind the children

--that Jesus loves them,

--Catholic life is awesome and fulfilling,

--and that learning about their faith is an

   interesting & fun journey...  

No "turn to page seven and read" type classes here.  Our classes will offer intriguing facts, conversations to challenge their faith, and offer ways to season their days with meaningful faith-building opportunities. 

Our Catholic Faith is NOT BORING! 

                           So neither are our classes! 

                   SEE YOU AT REGISTRATION !!

JESSE TREE !!!

The Time to Start a JESSE TREE is not during the Christmas Season.   If we make ornaments all year long based on the bible stories we learn, we'll have a set by Christmas...the busy Christmas Season is the time to pray, enjoy, and reflect on Jesus' life depicted in our ornaments, as we once again "start at the beginning" - Jesus' birth.
