Welcome to Saint Kateri Parish Lifelong Faith Formation & Discipleship!
Our multifaceted, comprehensive program is for children, youth, families, young adults and adults. There is something for everyone!
Faith Formation is a lifelong process which is centered around the Mass and Sacraments. At Baptism, each of us began our journey of faith—a journey that lasts a lifetime. We are called to ongoing formation, prayer and growth in our relationship with Jesus Christ. Wondering about age specific guidelines? Timeline for Faith Formation for Families and Children
We offer year-round Faith Formation programs and ministries for all ages, including small group formation opportunities, Family/Intergenerational Gatherings, and a variety of ministry opportunities. Let us walk this journey of faith together!
