Below are the Children’s Faith Formation (CFF) programs we offer for children ages 3 1/2 years old up to 6th grade.

Registration is now open for the 2017/2018 Children’s Faith Formation year. Registration information and forms scan be found HERE.

Little Saints:

Little Saints is our warm and welcoming pre-school program offered during the 9 AM and 10:30 AM Masses for children 3 1/2– 5 years old.  While parents are at Mass, young children learn how special and loved by God they are!

Families of Faith:

We believe that parents are the first and best teachers of faith for their children, and that the best gift we can give the children of our parish is an entire family growing in faith together! With that in mind, St. Joan of Arc is happy to announce FAMILIES OF FAITH, our new faith formation program for all families with children in grades K-3 (younger and older siblings welcome!).  With FAMILIES OF FAITH your whole family comes together twice a month, to learn about God and grow in faith as a family.  Three options are available:

  • Sundays after the 9 AM Mass (10-11:15 AM)
  • Sundays after the 10:30 AM Mass (11:30-12:45 PM)
  • OR Thursday evenings (6:00-7:15 PM)

First Reconciliation & First Eucharist:

After your child has completed one year of faith formation in the first grade (or later), he or she is eligible to enter the Sacraments program, and prepare to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist.  Families wishing their child to receive these sacraments will attend Families of Faith, plus extra workshops to prepare specifically for the sacraments.
