Children in Grades 1-5

Spark! - GRADES 1 and 2

Children enrolled in grades 1 and 2 Faith Formation meet at the parish in small groups called Centers, each with about 10 children and 2 adults. They meet 3 times a month to learn about and grow in their relationship with Jesus and their understanding of our faith traditions. Mary Huebner is our Coordinator for grades 1 and 2. Contact Mary.

Spark! - GRADES 3, 4 and 5

Children enrolled in grades 3, 4 and 5 Faith Formation meet at the parish 3 times a month to learn about our Catholic faith in a way that fosters fun, fellowship and discipleship with a focus on service to the poor and the meaning of the gospel message in their daily lives. Grade 5 is bible study. Christine Olsen is our Coordinator for grades 3 through 5. Contact Christine.


Toward the end of the second consecutive year of Faith Formation, children preparing to receive their First Reconciliation (Confession) and Communion attend 2 half-day retreats with their parents. Mary Huebner is our Coordinator for First Communion Ministry. Contact Mary.


During the 9:00am and 11:00am liturgies ALL children (parishioners and guests) in grades 1-5 are invited to a separate space to hear the readings and Gospel proclaimed at thier level from the Children's Lectionary. The children rejoin their families in church in time for the Eucharistic prayer.
