Pay Faith Formation / Religious Education Fees 

Faith Formation Classes: Faith Formation is offered for ages 4 to 17. Faith Formation Classes are offered to assist parents in teaching our Catholic faith. While Faith Formation Classes are not mandatory like the Sacrament Preparation Classes are, they is HIGHLY encouraged. Elementary age children will meet an average of twice a month. 

Genesis:  Genesis is for ages 4 and 5 (Pre-K and K).                                                                  
Little Saints: Little Saints is now the name for our elementary children in grades 1-5. The “Faith Formation Level” is equivalent to the child’s “Grade in School.”                           
EDGE: EDGE is for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. They meet each Wednesday. This program is designed to bring middle schoolers together as one group, to meet them where they are and tap into their educational, spiritual, emotional, and social needs.  Please note, that the EDGE Retreats and family events will take place throughout the year.                        
Confirmation:  Preparation TRADITIONALLY begins in 9th Grade, but can also be started their Sophomore and Junior year of High School. Please note that Sacrament Preparation for Confirmation is a two-year process. Therefore, starting the program as a Senior is not an option. Mandatory Parent Meetings, Family Events, Masses, Retreats, and similar events will take place throughout the year.
Post-Confirmation for High School: Be part of the Core Team! Sharing your faith. Living your faith. This is for teens who have made their Confirmation already.

Our sessions offer age-appropriate religious education for each level of faith development. Please note that all Faith Formation sessions that meet in person will strictly follow all State, County, and Diocesan regulations and guidelines. The health, safety, and well-being of our STM families is first priority.

If your child is attended REACH classes, they will receive the upcoming year’s Registration Packet at our class meeting. Otherwise, packets may also be picked up at the Parish Office.

Join us every summer for Vacation Bible School (VBS)!
