Kindergarten through 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 and Church’s renewed efforts on moving from a religious education (schooling) model to true comprehensive faith formation.
