Partners in Faith
Sunday Mornings / 10:15 – 11:45 a.m. / twice a month
serving grades Pre K to 8 and their parents

This family-based, community-oriented formation continues, beginning its ninth year. 

Partners in Faith centers around 9 a.m. Sunday Mass, then continues with studying of Scripture and our Catholic Tradition, connecting faith and life experiences as parents and children gather in meaningful 1½ hour, interactive sessions, twice a month, August-May, in the Education Center. 

Family Faith Formation

Tuesday Afternoons / 4:30 – 5:45 p.m. / Weekly

serving grades Pre K to 8


Children in this ministry meet weekly in small groups by grade level, from mid-August through the first of May.  
Parents attend five sessions for adults per year, while their children are in class. 


Catechists lead these sessions, helping our children come to a deeper experience and understanding of God’s unconditional love and mercy and their call to be disciples in mission. This is done through shared prayer time,
studying of Scripture and our Catholic Tradition, discussion of our everyday lives, and service to those in our parish and El Dorado County communities. In this experience, they come to know Christ in Word, Sacraments, one another, and the world around us.
