St. Paul Parish Church offers a wide variety of faith formation programs for children ages 3 to 8th grade. As the primary catechists, parents play a significant role of establishing the foundation of a child’s spiritual development. Our mission is to enhance your efforts in your child’s faith formation at home, in the classroom and the parish community.
For many of us the term CCD slips off our tongue when referring to parish religious education. CCD stands for The Confraternity of Christian Doctrine which is an association established at Rome in 1562 for the purpose of giving religious education. Its modern usage, often abbreviated CCD is the parish religious education program of the Roman Catholic Church.
St. Paul Parish changed the name of its religious education program to Family Faith Formation to reflect the lifelong learning required of our faith journey as well as the importance of the family in the support and flourishing of one’s faith life.
All Catholic children, who do not attend a Catholic grade school, are required to attend religious education classes (grades 1-8). It is through these classes that they grow in their understanding of our Catholic faith and most importantly develop a relationship with the God who loves them passionately. Religious education classes are offered for children pre-K through 8th grade. Our schedule offers families options for attendance; Sunday mornings or Monday evenings. FFF classes are traditional classes held in St. Paul School classrooms with wonderful dedicated catechists. Classes begin in September and run through the month of April.
