Children’s Faith Formation
(Kindergarten through fifth grade) Faith Formation classes for children in Kindergarten through fifth grade take place on Sunday morning from 10:45am to noon at St. Nicholas School or Monday evenings from 6:00pm-7:15pm at St. William. We highly recommend that children begin attending Faith Formation in Kindergarten.
First Reconciliation & First Holy Communion
The process to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion is usually two years. Children must be in first grade to begin the process. Children cannot receive the Sacraments until they are in the second grade. During the second year in addition to Faith Formation, families will be required to participate in parent meetings, retreats, and a rehearsal. Full details will be given during the orientation meeting in the fall.
Edge Middle School Ministry
All youth in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade are encouraged to participate in our Edge Middle School Ministry program. Edge is a Catholic middle school youth ministry program. It provides a safe fun place for youth to find solid Catholic community, to get answers to their questions about faith, and, most importantly, to experience Jesus in a profound and personal way. Edge resources speak to the physical, psychological, cognitive, relational, and spiritual maturation of middle school youth. Edge meets every Monday, 6pm to 8pm.

As a Eucharist-centered movement within the Roman Catholic Church, Life Teen leads teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. All high school students are welcome to join us Sunday nights from 6:15 to 8:30pm.
