Parents wishing to have their child baptized may call the parish office and ask to speak with a priest or deacon to schedule a one-hour baptism class.
Parents will be encouraged to register for our birth-preschool faith formation program: Early Catholic Family Life. Click the Faith Formation tab above for more details.
Confirmation preparation begins in May for students in 10th grade or older. Students will participate in Decision Point (confirmation preparatory program) and a book study on Pope Francis' Encountering Truth which can be purchased used on Amazon. Candidates for Confirmation will participate in a service project, an overnight retreat, interview with a priest, and write a letter of intent to our bishop. Confirmation takes place in spring of a student's junior year.
Registration can be done online (click the Faith Formation tab) or by calling the office: 715-532-3051
