Faith Formation

2022-2023 Faith Formation
Faith formation is catechesis (teaching the faith) which aims to deepen people’s contact with Jesus Christ via educational and enrichment opportunities. Designed to touch the intellect as well as the heart, these programs help people live and experience a more Christ-centered life. In order to walk this path authentically and properly, it is necessary to understand how to have a relationship with God. We need to know, not only how to live, but what it means to live the fullest gift of life God has granted to us.
At the Church of Nativity, we offer faith formation for young children (PreK-K), school-age children (1st-8th), teens, and adults. The purpose of faith formation is to give direction to our life. In doing so we are better able to share with others, to evangelize, and understand our Catholic Faith.

You must be registered with the parish to be eligible for Faith Formation classes.




Class Times

Attendance at both Mass and education are very important. Please be mindful of future commitments when selecting your class time so that sports and other activities do not conflict. We ask that you email us regarding all absences. After 3 absences, you will be required to meet with the pastor.

Classes are limited in size, so this is a request, not a guarantee. If the class you request is full, you will be notified promptly and your child will be placed in the next available class.

If you are interested in your children coming to class at different times from each other, please indicate in the box dedicated for important information below.
