While the catechesis offered within the family is ordinarily informal, unstructured, and spontaneous,
it is no less crucial for the development of the child’s faith. “In a certain sense nothing replaces
family catechesis, especially for its positive and receptive environment, for the
example of adults, and for its first explicit experience and practice of the faith.”
– National Directory for Catechesis, 48.E.1

Preschool Faith Formation
Preschool Faith Formation at St. Thomas the Apostle
involves the entire family!
Designed for families with students who are 3-5 years old, our faith formation process involves short stories and activities.
Preschool Faith Formation will meet in the Gym one Sunday a month from 9am – 9:45am. You are encouraged to join us for either the 8:00am or 10:00am Mass and attend formation either before or after Mass.
Parents and children will attend and participate in faith formation together. Due to Safe Environment guidelines, all children must always have a parent or guardian present with them during faith formation.
Older students are welcome to join and work with their siblings. Please note that participation in this formation does not serve as the preparation necessary for the reception of the sacraments of reconciliation, Eucharist, or confirmation.
Please mark the following dates on your calendars and prepare to join us!
