“Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do so will be called least in the kingdom of heaven. But whoever obeys and teaches these commandments will be called greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”
The Faith Formation process for middle school, 5th through 8th Grade, focuses on community building and reinforcing the Catechetical foundation built in the lower elementary grades. Growth in the young person’s faith is strengthened with an emphasis on the Bible, Catholic teaching and how to connect our Catholic traditions into daily life. This ministry also facilitates the transition into the high school programs and continued parish involvement. 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 .
