The Church’s catechetical mission aims to help the faithful of all ages to grow in both human and Christian maturity, enriching the whole of life with the leaven of the Gospel.

At its heart, Catholic education means teaching the faith to adults, youth, and children in a way that brings them to an encounter with Jesus Christ and prepares them to know, love, and serve God.


  • Through our parish school we seek to instill Catholic values that will stay with our children throughout their entire lives, learning to respect others, to develop a sense of community, and to carry out the mission of care and service just as Jesus did.
  • Our Faith Formation program is a central aspect of the Church’s responsibility to teach the faith, and many of our young people receive religious education from parish catechists.
  • Sacraments are celebrations of our faith life. Our Children’s Sacramental Preparation programs are designed to help them focus on the meaning of sacraments and their readiness for celebration.


  • Our Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults program is supports adults in their search to become faith-filled disciples and full participants in the life of the Church through the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist. It is a process of education, faith sharing, and rituals that includes several stages marked by prayer, study, and reflection.
  • Saint Andrew’s Institute of Theology provides a foundation of the faith at an adult level. It is designed for those seeking to deepen their knowledge of the faith through the study of theology, God’s revelation in Scripture, and the Church magisterium. Seminars are taught by theology professors from local Universities and Institutes.
