Faith Formation

Mission Statement

Saint Anne Parish Faith Formation works in partnership with parents to provide a faith filled education. Through teaching students about Christianity, we attempt to help every child build a personal relationship with God and the Catholic Church. 

Faith Formation Sessions for Kindergarten - 8th Grade

Saint Anne Faith Formation offers several catechetical options so that you can choose the method that works best for you and your family. 

Classroom Style Faith Formation Sessions

Kinder through 8th Grade:     Mondays 4:15 pm – 5:30 pm at Saint Anne School
                                               Mondays 6:15 pm – 7:30 pm at Saint Anne School

8th Grade Only:                     Sundays 9:30 am – 10:45 am at Saint Anne Churcfh

Home-Based Faith Formation

In addition to our on-site catechetical programs, we offer parents the opportunity to teach religious education to their children in their own home through our Home-Based program. This option is available for all grades. Parents who elect to utilize this program are provided the resources and materials to teach the curriculum at home. Home-Based students follow the Faith Formation schedule and also require full participation in our parish formation gatherings such as Family Night, Stations of the Cross, and Penance Services.

Please contact the Faith Formation Office if you would like to learn more about our programs.

Volunteers are needed! 

We are in need of volunteers to share their time and faith with the nearly 370 children in the Faith Formation Program. A catechist has a very important ministry in the church as a teacher of our children. If you feel led to serve as a catechist, assistant, or to help with administrative work, contact the Faith Formation Office at (412) 561-0101 or 

All volunteers 18 years of age and older must complete the Diocesan Safe Environment requirements.
