Parent-led Catechesis

Replacing the classroom model of formation, Parent-led Catechesis is a two-part process. First, parents meet once per month on SUNDAYS from 3-4:45 pm or TUESDAYS from 6:15-8 pm where they learn the material and then teach students at home. During the parent session, students attend a fun review here at Church. Second, in addition to that formation, families attend the Family Gathering once a month. This includes a  bring-your-own picnic and family activity. For families with grades K-7.

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (3-6 y/o)

Grounded in an understanding and appreciation of the child’s engagement with Scripture and Liturgy, Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) offers a gentle way to honor the genuine spiritual life of children ages 3-6 through Montessori methodology. The level I program lays the foundation for the child’s encounter with the Catholic community of faith. Sessions for 2023-2024 are SUNDAY's following Mass from noon-2 pm.

Sessions offered:

  • Sundays from noon - 2 pm
  • A minimum of 4 students per session is required to offer session.
  • Enrolling students must be fully potty-trained (no diapers or pull-ups).

Rallying the children to come alive in their faith, Vacation Bible School combines song, storytelling, bible stories, exploration, saints, and so much more to connect children to each other and the world around them. Preschool through 5th grade students are welcome to participate. Many volunteers are needed to bring VBS alive!

Age minimum for volunteers - completion of 6th grade. All Volunteers must complete CASE Training.  Anyone age 18 or older must also successfully pass a background check.

Church Music Camp - July 15-19, 2024

At St. Patrick's Church Music Camp we nurture everyone’s God-given gift of music. All parishioners (and neighboring church parishioners) are invited to attend, whether learning to sing for the first time or an experienced singer or instrumentalist. Our camp is an opportunity to deepen your faith and understanding of the Holy Mass while creating music as a form of prayer: all while having fun with friends! One of our main goals is to enthuse young people to participate in Mass as singers and musicians and to culture an approach of praying when singing and making music.
