Children's Faith Formation (Kinder - 7th Grade)

St. Monica's Faith Formation seeks to help parents and children encounter the love of God and His Church. It is within the context of the family that our children first learn who God is. To this end, we seek to help families grow in their love and knowledge of the Catholic faith by providing catechesis faithful to the teachings of the Church, faith filled catechists, formation for parents, and resources for the whole family.

Religious Education

St. Monica offers faith formation and sacramental preparation from Kinder - 7th grade. Children attend class in a traditional classroom setting while parents are offered the opportunity to grow in their own knowledge of the faith at the same time. Classes for children are held in English while formation for parents is held in both English and Spanish.

Classes are offered on Sunday from 3:15 - 4:45 p.m.

Please refer to the following parent booklet for more information about our Children Faith Formation program:
