 Evangelization

The Office of Evangelization is responsible for Religious Education for children and teens, Youth Ministry for middle- and high-school teens, Family Programs, and Sacramental Preparation for Baptism, First Penance, First Holy Communion, and Confirmation.

Although we provide many programs through our various ministries, the only goal of our department is to offer opportunities for you and your family to experience and form a relationship with Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God. 

Sacramental preparation programs and religious education classes do not exist for their own sake; they are meant to open your mind and your heart to the richness of the Catholic faith as it has been handed on to us through Scripture and Tradition so that you might, through your witness, share the love of Christ Jesus with your family and with the world.

Please let us know how we can help you as you move along your journey of faith.
