    Religious Education Classes for Fall 2015 - We are currently registering children for the fall Religious Education Classes for children 4 years old through 6th grade. Parents make a solemn commitment to train their children in the practice of the faith by teaching all that Jesus Christ taught us by loving God and our neighbor. At the baptism of their children parents are instructed to be the first and foremost teachers of their children in the ways of faith. Saint Joachim Faith Formation is here to help you whether you choose a home study program or you’re enrolling your children in Religious Education classes. Our formation as Catholics goes way beyond the preparation to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist because it is a lifelong endeavor.
    We are here to help you register your children in the Faith Formation Office, Monday through Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Registration is $65 per child. Classes will begin Sunday, September 20th, at 11:15 a.m. after the 10:00 a.m. Mass.
  • Are you interested in becoming Catholic? - Are you interested in becoming Catholic or do you know someone who is? If you’ve been thinking about becoming a Catholic or you were baptized Catholic but never received Confirmation or Eucharist, now is the time to sign up for the 2015/2016 RCIA process. Classes begin in late August so don’t wait too long!
  • Adult Confirmation Classes - Adult Confirmation classes will begin in late August. You MUST register!
