Religious Formation for children in grades 1-8

Coming to know, love and serve Jesus Christ, our Lord and our God, is a lifelong journey. The Community of St. Irene is committed to partnering with our families to develop close, personal relationships with Jesus to experience all the peace and joy that God has planned for us. Our eight year religious formation program is the foundation on which a life of character and virtue is built. Our goal is to make intentional disciples of all the faithful so we can change the world through our living example.

Our family model of religious formation focuses on encountering God in His living Word, developing an active prayer life, receiving Jesus fully present in the Eucharist at Mass, responding to God’s call to serve His people and embracing the teachings of our Lord, Jesus.

Throughout the year we provide Family Take Home lessons, classroom instruction, Family Events and Family service opportunities.  We come together to praise and worship God at the Holy sacrifice of the Mass. We find the purpose for which we were created and seek God’s direction to fulfill our mission.

Our children are also prepared to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation, First Communion and Confirmation during their 8 year journey.
