Circle of Grace

Out of concern for God’s people and in response to the USCCB’s Charter for the Protecting of Children and Young People, we offer a program for the safe environment education of children and young people supported and mandated by Article 12 of the charter. The program is called Faith Formation Classes for Baptized Children and Youth

Circle of Grace. It is meant to supplement and be integrated into the curricula for the formation of children and young people in our schools and religious education programs. It is taught during one of the scheduled religious education classes. Each year, parents must sign a permission slip for their children to participate. The top half has a signature for your permission. The bottom half has a signature for your request that your child not participate in this portion of the class instruction. Click here for the Circle of Grace Permission Form.

Formation for Parent and Sponsors

Parents are asked to attend two classes of faith formation each year. Parents and sponsors of children receiving sacraments are required to attend three classes of formation each year. Click here for more information.
