Faith formation program

2021 - 2022

Dear Families,

We are happy to welcome you to our 2021-2022 programs!

We see each child as precious in the sight of God and consider it an honor to partner with your family in the formation of your children. We are partners with parents! We do not take your place. We merely enhance your own teaching and example with our supplementary knowledge and experience.

We hope to lead our young people to a deeper relationship with Christ. We strive to engage your children through our teaching, prayer, sacramental preparation, and liturgy. You, as parents, set the example by your Mass attendance and witness in the world as your family lives according to the teachings of the Catholic Church all week long. Thank you for giving your children this most precious “gift!” of faith!


We want to give you an update regarding the 2021-2022 Faith Formation school year.

We will be sending out an email the fourth week of September, with more information to the families that have already registered. We hope this will give all families a chance to settle back into school before they start our Faith Formation Program. Take the time to read through this information. We suggest you put the Faith Formation Calendar in a prominent place. You can also find our google calendar here on our website, in the "Calendar page". On the first day of class be sure to check your child’s folder for their class syllabus and for other pertinent information about all of our parish activities. Sometimes, the calendar needs to be tweaked during the year. We try to keep you informed of all changes. Be sure to have your e-mail updated with us so you can receive all the important information!

Please remember to pray for us, as we pray for you, as we continue striving to build “the Kingdom of God ~ one child at a time.” The Faith Formation program is a family ministry that is here to support your journey with Christ.


In the Peace of Christ,

Mrs. Maria Guadalupe Avila, CRE

Please note:


We will be holding in-person classes at the Parish Hall at Our Lady of Fatima Church. Their parish hall has several classrooms as well as a large main hall to facilitate more of our students. Unfortunately, we are no longer able to use Holy Trinity School for Faith Formation classes. We are excited to have a dedicated space for our students.

We’re excited to share our chosen curriculum, Pflaum Gospel Weeklies with you. An alternative to bulky textbooks, each family-friendly issue flows from the Sunday Gospel readings, and has an easy-to-use parent guide so you can feel confident about sharing the faith with your whole family!

What is the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies Faith Formation Program? The Pflaum Gospel Weeklies is the ONLY liturgically-based catechetical program in the Catholic market for children from preschool through ninth grade. It is available in English and Spanish, digitally and in print. Every lesson on every grade level is based on each week’s Sunday Gospel and the Catholic doctrine that flows from it. Parents and guardians will find this method easy-to-use. It will assist them in discussing the Gospel together as a family each week

During this difficult and uncertain time, our hearts are with you and we are here to support your families in any way we can. Stay tuned!
