What is Children’s Small Groups?

Faith Formation classes for children in 1st through 4th grade take place on Sunday morning from 10:05 to 11:05 a.m. (directly following the Children’s Mass) at St. William Parish Hall, or Monday evenings from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. at St. William Parish Hall.


Pre-School Ministry (Preschool and Kindergarten)

Our Pre-School Ministry takes place during the 9:00 Children’s Mass at St. William. We highly recommend that children begin attending Faith Formation through this ministry and continue to attend our programs every year.


First Reconciliation & First Holy Communion

Walking into Church2The 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 classes,
families will be required to participate in parent meetings,
retreats, and a rehearsal.
