Ministry: Formation Ministries

Formation Ministries

The formation of our parish family is of highest importance as we deepen our relationship with Jesus and one another. The following programs exist for our parish family to fulfill this purpose.

Cross Step is for children ages 1 (and walking) through 4 years old who will engage in age-appropriate hands-on activities to teach them about the Catholic faith while their parents attend Sunday 9am Mass. Cross Walk is a small group-based faith formation program for elementary-aged children, grades K-5 offered on Sunday mornings throughout the school year. Each session is centered on the Gospel heard at Mass while offering small-group fellowship in a fun, safe environment.

Cross Train (grades 6-8) and Cross Road (grades 9-12) are small group-based faith formation programs for our middle school and high school youth. These programs offer faith and fellowship in a fun, social setting and safe environment!

Young Adult ministry group exists to engage with our young adults for fun activities to provide an opportunity for them to gather socially and engage in faith filled activities.

Adult faith formation is offered on Sunday mornings in between the 9am and 11:45am Masses. These sessions are opportunities to deepen participant’s understanding of the Catholic faith while connecting each topic to the reality of daily life.
