Faith Formation for Youth

St. Mary of the Lake Parish

St. Mary of the Lake Parish will have “in person” Faith Formation for the 2021/2022 school year.  There will be no “at home” option unless there is a medical reason and with a doctor’s note that a child cannot attend scheduled classes.  St. Mary of the Lake Parish reserves the right to revisit this decision if situations change.  We meet on Sunday mornings from 9:45 AM – 10:45 AM for class time using the “Faith and Life” series as well as other resources to engage and teach our children our beautiful faith.  We will also be reinstating Family Faith Formation which will be part of the curriculum and all families will be expected to attend.  Family Faith Formation is a meeting one Sunday per month (usually the end of the month) following the 11:00 AM Mass where families of Faith Formation meet in the parish hall for a meal together and then a lesson with Father Bill followed with an activity.

Registration forms for returning students have been mailed to the family home.
