Faith Formation for Youth

St. Mary of the Lake Parish

St. Mary of the Lake Parish will begin Children’s Faith Formation on Sunday September 18, 2022.  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 also have Family Faith Formation which is a 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 the Children’s Faith Formation meet in the parish hall for a meal together and then a lesson with Father Bill followed with an activity to reinforce the Domestic Church.

Registration for all new and returning students will be on Sunday August 14th following the          11:00 AM Mass-

Parish breakfast will also be offered that day
