We'll see you all next year!!

Religious Education is a Wednesday evening program for children in the parish who attend public schools. Volunteer Catechists work with kindergarten through eighth grades using a classroom-based religion curriculum that addresses both Scripture and Catholic tradition. Our programming emphasizes service, community, in addition to Catholic doctrine. Religious Education has a long tradition and meets a great need for many Catholic families.
If you need a paper registration form, please contact Lisa Bromschwig at (952)881-8671 x315 or email email@example.com.
Adult Faith Formation
Each year, we present a varied menu of adult faith formation opportunities, generally in response to parishioner suggestions. Recent programs included bible studies, the Archdiocesan Evangelization Initiative, explorations of Catholic history and Church teachings, discussions of current faith issues, study of other religions, the popular "Water Cooler Questions" series. Most of the programs are taught or facilitated by staff or parishioners. When the budget allows it, we have occasional guest speakers. Any parishioner is welcome to contact the Director of Adult and Sacramental Formation with requests or suggestions for future programming.
Welcome to the Sacrament of Confirmation for the program year 2017-2018. Confirmation has a registration form that is different from the Religious Education registration form.
