St. Catherine Faith Formation

The Faith Formation Program welcomes all children ages 4 yrs to Seniors in High School.

Let no one have contempt for your youth, but set an example for those who believe in speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity. 1 Timothy 4:12


Our Mission for our Youth:

To grow in close relationship with Jesus Christ while forming them in their Catholic Faith.  Praise Jesus!

St. Catherine Faith Formation relies on volunteers to share their love of Jesus with our youth.

Students are encouraged to personally encounter Jesus through scripture, prayer and the Sacraments while being a vital part of St. Catherine's Body of Christ.

Please keep our families in your prayers.  There will be new beginnings and a lot of activity.

Totus Tuus - Canceled for 2020

Totus Tuus -- “Totally Yours”
Totus Tuus is a summer Catholic youth program dedicated to sharing the Gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through evangelization, catechesis, Christian witness, and Eucharistic worship. Our week-long Parish Summer Catechetical Program and Summer Camps assist parents and parishes in the evangelizing and catechizing of their youth by supplementing the work they are already doing. The methodology, structure, content, and enthusiasm of Totus Tuus is concerned not only with teaching the faith, but also igniting the hearts of the team members and young people. The result has been the formation of young adults who continue to dedicate themselves to the Church’s mission of evangelization.
