Faith Formation for Children & Adults

Faith Formation (Religious Education) at Saint Catherine of Sienna Parish consists of opportunities for both children and adults.  Children participate during a school year in religious education classes according to grade, levels and need.  Adults may participate in study groups and special gatherings throughout the year.  There are a variety of events designed for children and teens as well as for our adults, both men and women.  

Children & Youth are formed in faith most often in a classroom setting; yet there are other opportunities for learning more about our faith, too.  Children from ages 6 or 1st grade to 9th grade meet on a weekly basis in classes held in the Parish Activity Complex.  For teens wishing to receive or complete preparation for Baptism, Holy Eucharist and Confirmation there is the Rite of Initiation for Teens.  Read More

Adults - Parishioners, Parents & Guests come together for a variety of Faith Formation opportunities offered periodically throughout the year in different formats which may be a one-time event, monthly or weekly activity geared to adults to strengthen their faith and understanding of Church - and may include specific topics, themes or delivery styles.  Read More

Adults interested in seeking conversion or completion of preparation for Baptism, Holy Eucharist and/or Confirmation we offer Rite of Initiation for Adults and should contact Rev. Douglas R. Arcoleo.  Read More
