New Year, New plan…
Last year was a trying one and we figured out a way to bring Faith Formation into the home.
This year, we will be back in person for classes. We have taken measures to ensure the safety of our children and catechists that include smaller class sizes, mask-wearing requirements, socially distant seating, and more time for classroom sanitation in between classes. All Primary & Middle school classes are every other week. Confirmation Classes are held every other Sunday evening.
*Families must register as St. Stephen parishioners to register their children for Faith Formation classes.

Confirmation preparation is changing this year and will look different than in previous years. The Confirmation preparation process is a 2-year program that allows teens to learn together, hear from different speakers, grow in faith and build relationships with each other and with Jesus.
