Children's Faith Formation

"You too, dear young people can be joyful witnesses of his love, courageous witnesses of his Gospel, carrying to this world a ray of his light." - Pope Francis

Welcome to Religious Education! Our goal is to help our children grow to become true disciples of Jesus Christ by building relationships with them, being examples for them and teaching them God’s Word.

1st Grade - 5th Grade

Religious Education classes are held twenty Sundays from August to May. Sessions take place at St. Malachy School from 8:30 - 10:00 am. allowing children to participate at Mass with their families in order to apply and reinforce the faith formation they are experiencing during the Religious Education classes. Although parents are the first teachers of the faith, it is important for children to learn about their faith with their peers and from other adults’ perspectives.
