Faith Formation & Catechesis

R.C.I.A.

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) program provides the opportunity for those interested in the Catholic Faith to learn more and to determine if they wish to become Catholic.  Catholics who have not received First Communion or Confirmation and other who simply wish to renew or return to their faith are also encouraged to join us. Please consider joining the RCIA process.  We are ready when you are.

LifeTeen

Studies show that a person will make the decision on whether or not they practice a religion by the time that leave high school. That makes high school ministry one of the  most important ministries in the Church. Here at St. Paul, we have a vibrant youth program that leads teens to Christ and gives them the tools to be lifelong disciples. We have retreats, conferences, mission trips, and weekly gatherings. Life Teen also ensures that our teens at St. Paul belong to a holy community of teenagers making good decisions that help them on their journey.

Confirmation

Formation

   We are excited about our Confirmation Formation Program (CFP) for grades 6-8. While the current pandemic may make meeting in person prohibitive, our e-learning model continues to provide robust catechesis.

   Grade 6 students dive into a textbook-based curriculum combined with twice-monthly small-group instruction and fellowship that bridges our FSF Program to the Chosen Confirmation Program.

   We employ the Chosen Confirmation Program for our 7th and 8th grade Confirmation students. This web-based "head and heart" curriculum beautifully melds textbook, video, and virtual small-group discussion that is thought-provoking and leads students to a deeper understanding of their faith.
