Faith Formation

Mission Statement

St. Anne Faith Formation works in partnership with parents to provide encounters with the Catholic faith through education, spirituality, and community, enabling students to develop strong and committed faith lives.

By the end of their time in the Faith Formation program, students will be able to:
  • Articulate essential Dogmas, Doctrines, and Authoritative Teachings of the Catholic Church. 
  • Develop personal styles of prayer through the Mass, rosary, adoration, or contemporaneous prayer. 
  • Contribute to the ongoing ministries present at St. Anne Parish.

About Our Programs

St. Anne Parish offers several catechetical options, allowing you to 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

Home-Based Faith Formation (Kinder – 8th Grade)
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. 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 get in touch with our office if you would like to learn more about how the Faith Formation Program can serve your family.

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
