Faith Formation at St. Bartholomew Church

From Our Director
Welcome to Saint Bartholomew Faith Formation

Our mission is to help you and your children develop and strengthen your relationship with Jesus Christ though Religious Education. Faith Formation is a lifelong process in which we continue to grow in knowledge and practice of the Catholic faith. Through the Religious Education Program, we also prepare our parish children for the Sacraments of First Penance, First Holy Communion and Confirmation. Children are offered a caring and loving environment to explore and grow as we build a community of Catholic Christians.

The mission of Saint Bartholomew’s Parish is to build our lives in the image of Christ through love, worship and service. The Religious Education Program hopes to continue the mission and guide our parish children to be lifelong Catholics.
