Kindergarten – Middle School Faith Formation

Beginning in Fall 2020, SJCC embarks on a true 21st century Faith Formation program. These developments respond both to the COVID-19 restrictions and Church’s renewed efforts on moving from a religious education (schooling) model to true comprehensive faith formation.

SJCC has reworked its faith formation program offerings to a single, multi-faceted option called Faith & Family.

The 2020-21 faith formation year begins October 4th.  If you would like to register your child or if you have questions about our program, please contact the faith formation assistant, Mary Ellen Will.   Please allow up to 3 weeks to process your registration. 

We want every family to have the opportunity to attend our Faith Formation and Sacramental Prep program.  If you are unable to afford the full payment at this time, please email the Faith Formation Office to see what options are available to you by clicking here.

Catechists & Other Volunteers Needed

Have you checked your phone lately? Maybe God is calling you to be involved in SJCC faith formation!  It’s not just about teaching others.  Being involved in our faith formation process allows you to deepen your own faith, meet new people, and help build our parish community; all while answering God’s call.  You can be on the ground floor of a leading edge faith formation program.  If you have basic computer skills and enjoy communicating with others about the love that God has for us, we’d love to hear from you!
