Structure & Curriculum

We welcome all children, from 4 years old through Grade 5, into our Children’s Faith Formation Program (also known here as PREP) to learn about the Good News of Christ in an interactive manner. Our traditional program has PREP classes for these elementary grades  held on a weekly basis, with three of those dates being a family session.  

There is also a homeschool option that allows you to complete most weekly sessions at home by emailing completed online reviews, while joining us in person for the LYFT events. Please see the link below for more information.

New this year, we added a faith formation option known as “Families on the Go” which is designed for those family calendars that have a lot of traveling or inconsistent availability due to sports, work, or custody schedules. Please see the link below for more information.

PREP registration forms are available online. Registrations cannot be taken over the phone. Families must be registered in the parish to enroll children in PREP.  Students must be 4 years of age by September 1st to register in the 4-year-old program. 

Our Elementary Faith Formation Program uses Finding God by Loyola Press to educate the children on their Catholic Faith, inspire a deep relationship with Christ, and the readiness to find God in all things.  Please visit their webiste to explore and discover online resources for Finding God:

Growing with God by Loyola Press is a family life supplemental program that is developed to be an integrated addition to the Finding God curriculum, which is required by the Archdiocese. Part of this family life program will be done within their PREP classes and the rest will be done at home, within your family.  To learn more about Growing with God visit
