Welcome Parents!

Thank you for your interest in our Faith Formation Program.

Faith Formation classes alone cannot instill faith in your child, nor is it the purpose of the program to do so. A program of this nature is meant to SUPPORT and NURTURE the faith you share with your child at home. 

We ask that all parents of those attending our program to:

  • Be faithful to Sunday worship. This privilege of Sunday worship is the fundamental sign of our Catholic identity.

  • Be living examples of faith to inspire your children by faithful and consistent participation in the sacraments of the Church displaying your values in word and deed to your children.

  • Take an active role in teaching your children in the following ways:
    • Encourage and support your child to be faithful in attendance to the sessions.
    • Contact the Faith Formation staff when the need arises or questions arise... good communication is essential.
    • Make family prayer a regular activity. 

Class Sessions

Classes begin early September and go through early May.

Sundays                      10:45 am - 12:15 pm     (Classes begin September 9th)

Sacramental Preparation

Our Program

 

St. Louise Faith Formation staff and Catechists take the commitment to work with your children seriously. We will pray with you and for you, as together we share responsibility for the spiritual development of each child. We rely on your support in our effort to pass on Catholic tradition and values to your children.
