Are there any classes or programs designed specifically for my child’s age group?

These youth enrichment opportunities include a summer VBS, mini VBS days throughout the year, retreats, service projects and small group gatherings like Youth Alpha. There are a variety of activities throughout the year for every age level. Please note that these are enrichment opportunities only, and enrollment in a Faith Formation program or Catholic School is required.
