Elementary Religious Formation

St. Joseph's Religious Formation Program strongly supports the essential role of parents in bringing children into a life of faith. It is the parents' Christian example, their participation in the celebration of the Eucharist, and their commitment to the education of their children, in which the Truth of their Faith is taught.

Our mission is to educate each individual to develop an active life of faith, and to encourage parents and children to grow in faith together.
