Family Faith Formation
FAITH BEGINS AT HOME
At St. Jude, we take seriously the call for each family to be the Domestic Church and our Faith Formation programs reflect this belief. Passing on the faith begins at home and we support you in your mission.
Faith Formation for students in Preschool – 8th grade is a combination of in-home activities with connection to the parish through monthly gatherings, Mass, mini-retreats and/or service. Confirmation begins in 9th grade. Visit the Confirmation/High School Ministry page here. All children are welcome. If you have a child with special learning or behavioral needs, please let us know. We offer a special needs ministry as well as ways to welcome students into traditional classrooms. You can visit our special needs ministry page here.
Family Faith Preschool – Grade 5: Register to be a part of either the Saturday group or the Sunday group:
Families gather once a month for family activities, grade level classes and adult formation. Follow up with work to be completed at home.
