Faith Formation (Grades 1-8)

Welcome to Religious Faith Formation at St. Joseph Catholic Church !

We are happy that you and your children are part of our faith-based learning community! The Youth Ministry is here to assist you, the parents, in your role as primary teachers of the Catholic faith to your children. The partnership with our parents is taken very seriously. We are committed to providing an environment that will allow children to learn, experience, and grow as members of the Catholic faith community.

Evangelization through religious formation involves each of us. The Faith Formation & Youth Ministry staff and our dedicated catechists and volunteers hope to provide a JOYFUL, meaningful, Christ-centered experience for every student . From Sacramental preparation to youth gatherings, family events to retreats, regular class sessions to service projects; we are blessed with a vibrant parish that strives to grow closer to Christ!   Join us...together we can build the Kingdom of God!

2016-17  Print-Out FF Registration

If you complete the Print-out Form we ask that you submit to Youth Office before August 10th,  and attend the Faith Formation Orientation/ Meet & Greet. Thank you!

We will offer ONE Sunday Session :

  • The 9:10am session begins in the Chapel and concludes in the classroom at 10:25am.

 *Please note that the left entrance of the Chapel is opened for easier access and less distraction for the Mass attendees.


Along with our Faith Curriculum (Faith in Life) students also are given a Mass Journal  with entries for each Sunday Mass and holy day of obligation. The Mass Journal provides a space for students to write down their reflections and/or questions concerning the readings/homily at Mass.  The journal will be checked occasionally by Youth Ministry Staff, and is to be turned in at the end of each formation year for review.  Please remember that weekly Sunday (or Saturday night) Mass is obliged of all Catholics!

If your child has not already received their Mass Journal, please look for the designated Mass Journal for your Child at the entrance of the Church when you come in at mass or feel free to  stop by the Youth Office, open from M-F 8am-3:30pm


Help needed!  Share the Good News of Christ and His Church!
