Faith Formation for Youth

Susan Doyle, Director of Religious Education      

Looking for information on Confirmation of youth this fall? Go HERE.

Registration for the 2021-22 program year is OPEN, and we are IN PERSON!

Per Gov. Northam’s Aug. 12 executive order, all persons over the age of 2 will be required to wear masks in our program.  Frequent handwashing and hand-sanitizing will be encouraged.  Desks will have been cleaned with wipes before entry of children, and children will be asked to clean with wipes before departing.

Please be sure to read our handbook below to familiarize yourself with policies regarding our program.  You will be asked to verify that you’ve read it within the Google Form registration.
