Sonshine Youth Camp is July 11-13!

Students in grades 3-8 are invited to Sonshine Youth Camp at Lake Metigoshe in July!  We'll leave by bus the morning of Sunday, July 11, and return Tuesday evening, July 13.  You'll find all the details and the registration information on this form.  It's a fun time you won't want to miss!

Registration for Faith Formation and Youth programs

Registration forms for classes for the 2021-2022 school year will be available by August 10.  We offer classes for age 3 through high school.

Prayers and Teachings

Looking for something to do to build your child's faith knowledge this summer?  Work with them on memorizing these Prayers and Teachings of the Catholic Church at home.  When Faith Formation begins again, they can recite them at the Prayer Station for a prize or to help raise money for the poor.  Here's a link to the Prayers and Teachings.

Confirmation

In our parish, students attend monthly Confirmation classes beginning in the fall of their 9th grade year (or older) with the Confirmation Mass being celebrated in October of the following year (their sophomore year).  If your child is in grade 9 or older and has not been confirmed, please contact us.

Has it been a while since you went to confession? Here is a guide.

The Church recommends that we confess our sins to a priest through the sacrament of reconciliation at least once per month.  For many of us, the length between confessions might be much longer and we might worry that we forgot "how" to go to confession.  A priest will help you know what to say, but if you'd like a written guide, consider printing one of these and bringing it with you.
