Welcome to the Children's Ministry Program

Consider these two important questions for today. How can we increase the likelihood that our youth will be committed to Jesus Christ and a life of service? And, how can we as parents and Church be companions on the journey? As parents you have the primary responsibility of the faith development of your children. It is our responsibility and desire as a parish community to provide resources and faith-filled learning opportunities to support your efforts. This partnership is essential if we hope to pass on our faith and make a difference for His Glory! We ask God's blessings on this very important ministry!

Genesis/Religious Education for grades 1-5 is offered on Wednesday evenings, 5:45-7:00 pm from September thru April. This program is tri parish, St. Joseph, St. Peter & Paul and Corpus Christi and meets in the Faith Formation Center at St. Joseph.
