Faith Formation


The mission of the CCD Program is to bring Christ to his people and bring his people to the realization that they are the Church. We accomplish this by teaching the love of God and sharing our faith throughout the grades from pre-school through high school. Educating the parents of our children through adult formation classes. Preparing students for their sacraments and continuing formation in their faith knowledge. Being community to each other and promoting a strong parish family support.


Please be advised that September 27th will be the last day to register for CCD classes. We will not accept any CCD registrations after that. Please fill out the CCD registration form and hand it over in-person along with the registration fees to the Trustees or CCD Coordinator. The PDF version of the registration form can be found in Documents.

To accommodate the new registrations and some unavoidable situations, we had to make changes to the Team assignments. Please make sure that you are following the most current version of the Team assignments. You can use the check my team assignment tool on our web site if you are unaware of your Team assignment. Alternatively, you can check with your children's CCD Teachers as well.



As a new service, we will be posting a downloadable copy of the Church Bulletin on our website on a weekly basis. The bulletins are in pdf format and to view and print them you need to have Acrobat Reader which is a free pdf reader.

<p></p><p>St. Saturninus was the first bishop of Toulouse. It is not known if there were Christians in the town previously, or if his preaching won many converts, but whatever the case, he founded a small church there not long after his arrival. To reach his parish, he had to pass&nbsp;in front of&nbsp;the capitol, where there was a pagan temple. The pagan priests there ascribed the silence of their oracles to his frequent passings. One day they seized him, and when he refused to sacrifice to their idols, they tied his feet to a bull which dragged him around the town until the rope broke. Two devout women </p>
