April Week 1 Faith Formation
Easter Blessings to you and your families! As we finish up this Faith Formation year, please take a moment to access the 2021-2022 Faith Formation form HERE and return it to the Parish Office to reserve your child’s spot for next year. We do hope to be back in the classroom next year and look forward to seeing our families on a regular basis IN PERSON! Below, you will find several items to choose from to help you through our final month of April. This month, our two lessons look at the questions: “How do we know the Catholic Church is the Church Jesus founded? And “ What do we mean by life everlasting?”
