Faith Formation (1st-5th grade)
September 2022 – April 2023
REGISTRATION FORM FOR 1ST – 5TH GRADE, PLEASE CLICK HERE
A team of dedicated catechists work with the children of the parish helping them grow in their understanding of their own faith in God and knowledge of the Church. This journey is accomplished by using resources approved by the United States Council of Catholic Bishops and following the curriculum set forth by the Diocese of St. Petersburg for each grade. The children learn about their faith and prepare for sacraments with age-appropriate texts and activities.
