Welcome to St. Michael the Archangel Faith Formation! We are excited to introduce our new program that has been designed to better educate our children. Included are more interactive activities that complement the lessons and a weekly Sunday Mass review.

The biggest change in our program involves the sacramental grades. Both First Holy Communion and Confirmation, are now two-year programs. Both years must be completed before the sacrament can be administered.

We are thrilled that most of our Catechists are now certified through the diocesan Catechist Certification Program. This program requires 40 hours of study in six different areas of our faith. In addition, we have several Catechists who are in various stages of study for their certification.

Below you will find a brief explanation of each year of study, from four year olds through eighth grade.
