Faith Formation Program
St. Paul’s Faith Formation program runs from September through May. Our 3, 4, & 5 year olds meet during Mass for Children’s Liturgy. Students in grades 1-12 meet on Wednesday or Sunday evenings. Classes on Wednesday evenings are 6:30 -7:30pm for grades 1-4, and 7:30-8:30pm for grades 5—8. Our Confirmation students meet on assigned Sunday evenings.
St. Paul’s also has an active youth group. Last year, some of our students were able to go on a mission trip to Cass Lake. They learned many valuable lessons while on this trip. We hope to send more youth this year.
Our parish also participates in the Generations of Faith program. Generations of Faith is an innovative approach to parish faith formation that involves all generations in learning and growing together through their experience and participation in church life. Generations of Faith provides an integrated and comprehensive approach to faith formation that equips the parish community to become a community of learning by creating lifelong faith formation that is centered in the events of church life, embraces all ages and generations, and promotes faith growth at home, through parish preparation programs, and, most importantly, through participation in church life. We hold 3 to 4 events per year and they are enjoyed by all!
