Faith Formation for Children REGISTRATION

(and 1st Communion) PreK through 8th Grade

Registration Open for 2019-2020

Join us for a joyful and fun-filled year of learning about our faith, both in the classroom and at our wonderful seasonal events! Registration is open for Sunday religious education classes starting in the fall for PreK through 8th grade. (PreK and K are during 9am Mass—great for parishioners and Academy students for Mass daycare.) Registration packets are at the church entrance, or below.


1st Communion 1st-2nd grade, open for all grades

Preparation for sacraments is two years, usually beginning in 1st grade, but our program warmly welcomes older children seeking sacraments (including baptism) through 8th grade. Registration packets are at the church entrance, or below.


Share your Faith with Children

Teaching children about the faith is a rewarding and uplifting experience. We have volunteer openings in our Faith Formation program at the elementary level. Co-teaching with a friend or spouse is also an option. Training and curriculum are provided, as well as teen aides in the classroom, and support from a dynamic catechetical team. Teens, we need you too! We have an awesome Teen Aide Team—great for college apps!

Share your Time and Talent

There is much to do behind the scenes to keep our Faith Formation program running. We need help Sunday mornings at the school front desk starting in September. Volunteer as often as you are able; training provided. We also need volunteers to help this summer to get ready for the school year. If you would like to share your time and talents, contact Pamela Smith at psmith@stjames-stleo.org.
