Saint John the Baptist parish offers a comprehensive children's Faith Formation program from preschool through grade 7. Classes are offered on a traditional school year schedule from late August through the end of April and are held on Sunday mornings from 9:40 am-10:50 am. Classes meet in the Saint John the Baptist Elementary School classrooms.
Optimally, children should be enrolled in the parish Faith Formation program or a Catholic School from grade 1 through grade 7. Preparation for the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist take place after a child reaches age 7. In order to enter into Sacrament preparation, children must have completed at least one full year of Faith Formation either at the parish or a Catholic school.
Preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation takes place in the 8th grade. Please visit the Confirmation page for more details.
