Faith For Life

We look forward in guiding your children in relationship with Jesus and knowledge of their Catholic faith, develop their God-given gifts and talents, and learn to be active members in the life of the Church.

 
Classes will be in-person and held at St. Stephen's, 18 Wednesday nights from 6 to 7:30pm. Whole Family Formation nights will be held throughout the year.
