Faith Formation

Grades K - 8

Update: Grade Level Classes are suspended for the 2020-2021 school year.  See the full Parish Religious Education COVID Plan. 

Ave Maria's Faith formation program seeks to lead children and youth in grades K-8 to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through their learning about Him in the sacraments, prayer, doctrinal, and moral teachings of the Church. 


Our Sunday morning program has small classes with qualified and enthusiatic catechists help parents to fulfill their responsibility to educate their children in the Christian faith.  Classes meet Sundays from mid-September through mid April from 11:15-12:15 at the Parish Academy.   Parents are encouraged to attend the parent sessions occasionally offered concurrently with the children's classes.

Our Family Faith Formation Program: A Family of Faith for families with children in grades K-8 is in its second year!  Click here for more information about Family Faith Formation. 


Registration for our Sunday morning K-8 program is accepted at any time throughout the year. Please follow the link below to register online.   If you have questions about the program, please contact Arielle Harms
