Faith Formation K-12
Our Cross Walk (grades K-5), Cross Train (grades 6-8) and Cross Road (grades 9-12) programs are group-based faith formation programs for our elementary school, middle school and high school-aged children. The programs are centered on the Mass, offering food and fellowship, in a fun, safe environment, with offerings to fit your family’s busy schedule! Our Sunday Cross Walk, Cross Train and Cross Road sessions meet twice a month, August through May. The Formation Team also offers monthly Family Events and other special events that will help build upon the teachings presented each week and foster opportunities in which the families can grow in faith together. These gatherings will help to make our children feel “at home” at St. Francis, a place where they can have fun and be themselves, while knowing that they are valued and loved!
