Our parish is blessed to have more than 100 volunteers to help staff all of our Faith Formation Programs. Together, we work to offer the best faith formation and religious education for all ages – from pre-schoolers through adults. In July 2010, our Education Building was named for our eighth Pastor, Fr. Gregory Hartmayer, OFM Conv., who was instrumental in its design and completion. It is now called the Hartmayer Education Building.
A quick tour of the building includes Pre-school and lower Elementary classrooms on the lower level. Our large Adult Faith Formation room (108/110) seats 70 people and is also located on the lower level. This is where most of our Adult Faith Formation and Confirmation sessions meet. Older Elementary students generally meet on the upper level. The Faith Formation Office is just inside the foyer of the upper level entrance where our Administrative Assistant is present to assist you. The offices of the Director of Faith Formation, the Coordinator of Religious Education and the Youth Minster are located in the old Education Building (called the John Paul II or JPII Center) on the upper level.
Middle and High School students in the Middle School and High School Youth Group programs meet in the Parish Hall and/or “Upper Room", which is equipped with video and sound equipment, a stage for bands, and is creatively decorated.
All parishioners are invited to visit our classrooms before or after class times. Our staff is here to serve you!
