Faith Formation is meant to supplement the religious formation a child receives at home; it is not meant to be the "Main Course".
Please arrive and pick up promptly. Late arrivals are very disruptive to the class as a whole. NO ONE is available to babysit a child after classes. Please pick up promptly! Families are encouraged to attend the 9:30 AM Mass together.
