Faith Formation


Mission Statement

St. Anne’s 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 grades:

Monday
    4:15 - 5:30 pm
    6:15 - 7:30 pm

In addition to our on-site catechetical programs, we offer parents the opportunity to teach religious education to their own children in the home through our Family-Based Faith Formation program. This option is available in all grade Parents who elect to utilize this program are provided the resources and materials to teach the faith formation curriculum to their children at home.

A Home-Group Program is also in place, which gathers a small number of children (average 6) for weekly catechesis in a home.

Both the Family-Based and the Home-Based Programs follow the traditional Faith Formation schedule and also require full participation in our parish formation gatherings such as the All-Saints celebration, Family Advent celebration, musical Living Stations of the Cross, and Faith Formation Opening and Closing Masses. 

Please contact the Faith Formation Office for information on these programs.

This ministry, offered once a month is intended for children ages birth - Kindergarten. We gather in Harkins Hall the second Tuesday morning of every month from 9:30am - 11:00am for a morning of song, prayer, Bible story, crafts and activities.  A parent or guardian is required to stay with the child for the duration of the event.
