Class Schedule

Due to COVID-19, no official date has been made for when class begins. We expect sometime in early September, during the evening. Our classrooms will be limited to 15 students. At this time we are not offering online classes. 

Family Faith Formation & Mass Attendance

We ask parents to attend a class for parents once a month during the program, as well as to attend mass as a family. Envelopes will be given to your child in which he/she can submit during mass as attendance. 

Serving in Religious Education

Whether you're interested to be a catechist or an assistant, we are always looking for spirited volunteers! Our program usually runs from September through April, and have class once a week. Please contact Ron Armendariz below for how to become a volunteer. 

Youth Ministry

It is important for youth to engage the Parish community because parishes "are the place where God's people meet Jesus in word and sacrament" in a concrete way (Renewing the Vision).

Youth ministry encourages young people (whether they have professed a faith or not) to learn more about a given faith and to become more involved in spiritual life.

If you would like to get involved, please contact Josephine Armendariz.
