Religious Education (Faith Formation)

Religious Education (Faith Formation)

Faith Formation for Children:

Faith Formation is a continuous process of growing into a deeper relationship with our Lord.  Similar to academics, we do not stop learning after elementary.  We graduate into high school.  We even want to further our learning in college and some take their masters or doctorate degree.  The Truth, Goodness and Beauty of God is infinite.  We need eternity to learn about the wonders of Jesus.

Faith Formation begins at home. We, at St. Helen Parish, wish to assist families in preparing a strong foundation for their children and  help the parents themselves, grow in their faith. 

We have weekly classes for children from Kindergarten through 5th grade in the elementary program.  The parents also gather once a month  for fellowship and support, learning about their faith, and praying together. 

Attendance in Faith Formation and the Mass is required for children preparing to receive the Sacraments.
