Welcome to Faith Formation at Saint Anthony Church!
The religious formation of our youth is extremely important. Foundations must be laid. However, taking personal responsibility for my formation as an adult is essential for the development of an informed, mature, and functional spiritual life. It is hoped that all who find a home here at St. Anthony will take their faith formation seriously and take full advantage of both present and developing opportunities.
Our Shared Mission
It is important to realize that our Faith Formation Program consists of participation in all classes, attendance at Mass each weekend, at-home learning, participation in service opportunities, and sacramental preparation. It is with this very combination of formation that will continue to grow the faith of all families. We rely upon your support and commitment to ensure that Faith Formation is a priority within your households.
Your desire for your child(ren) to know God's love is an extension of your love and caring for your child(ren). We are pleased to be able to partner with you, so that together, we can guide your child(ren) as they grow and mature in our Catholic faith.
Together, we have this unique opportunity to form a lived faith within our St. Anthony Parish Community that will have positive effects in each of our lives. We consider it a great privilege to work with you in this effort, and hope that you will feel free to come to us with any questions, concerns, or needs.

Family Mass Schedule
|We are happy to announce the return of Monthly Family Masses. Although families should attend Mass each weekend, this is a special opportunity for the children in our Parish to actively participate in a Mass with their peers. These Masses will have a special homily for the children, and will invite them to serve in certain ministries (greeting, usher, reading, and offertory collection). This is an amazing opportunity for our Parish youth to learn about the many components of our Catholic Mass.|

Faith Formation at St. Anthony Church is Accessible!
God made us to know Him, love Him, serve Him, and be happy with Him in heaven. We are all children of God, made in God’s image. Everyone has a unique capacity to know and love God. The sacraments are for all of God’s children. If you have a child with special needs, St. Anthony Faith Formation will make every effort to help your child receive instruction and to receive the sacraments. Please reach out to Andrea to let us know about your amazing child!
