“They are like a tree planted beside the waters that stretches out its roots to the stream: It does not fear heat when it comes, its leaves stay green; In the year of drought it shows no distress, but still produces fruit.”
The Faith Formation process for children, Pre-K through 5th Grade, is an integrated curriculum that consists of Catholic Catechism, Scripture, music, and Liturgical experiences in an age-appropriate format. Recognizing parents as the primary catechists in their children’s lives, the Faith Formation staff provides families with the tools and coaching they need to enrich the faith growth of their children.

The preparation for First Eucharist, and First Reconciliation occurs during the second year of faith formation. The program includes guided instructional sessions and home study materials. Concurrent enrollment in both sacramental preparation and faith formation is required. Click here for more information.

All catechists and volunteers will be background checked and trained in compliance with the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People.
The Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People is a comprehensive set of procedures established by the USCCB in June 2002 for addressing allegations of sexual abuse of minors by Catholic clergy. The Charter also includes guidelines for reconciliation, healing, accountability, and prevention of future acts of abuse.
The Charter directs action in all the following matters:
- Creating a safe environment for children and young people.
- Healing and reconciliation of victims and survivors.
- Making prompt and effective response to allegations.
- Cooperating with civil authorities; Disciplining offenders.
One of the requirements of the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People is that parishes make information available regarding Sexual Abuse and how to report it. Complaints about sexual abuse by a member of the clergy or by a parish or Catholic school employee or volunteer can be made by contacting Lisa Petronis: 858-490-8353 or click here .
