Saint Alexander’s Faith Formation program is an ongoing invitation to the life-long journey of relationship, love, and service to our God, His message, and His people. This journey is family-centered with special attention to our children in grades Pre-K through Grade 12, inclusive of the sacraments of Holy Communion, Reconciliation, and Confirmation.
As we begin a new journey each year, we want the communication between families and the Faith Formation program to be open and consistent, being available to your suggestions and needs. We will strive to model and extend the joy and love of our God in every lesson to our children and families. All lessons will begin with prayer. In addition, another goal is to provide parent, child, and catechist faith-sharing experiences along the way.
Along with Father Rosenbaum, Deacons, families, and ministries, we extend a loving invitation to begin our journey. We look forward to serving you and your family with the Good News of Jesus as we grow in faith together.
