Family Faith Formation

Register for Fall Faith Formation 2024-25 HERE

Our Family Faith Formation program welcomes the whole family to attend together once each month. The session includes a small potluck breakfast, large group learning, small group peer discussions, service projects and/or prayer experiences. Families are also given materials to do lessons with their children on the weeks between the sessions.

2024/2025 dates: September 29, October 27, November 24, December 15, January 26, February 23, March 23, April 27, May 18

FEE: $125 per child, $250 family maximum

It is the practice of St. Mary of the Lake Church that all individuals or families have access to opportunities to learn and grow in the Catholic faith at St. Mary’s, regardless of ability to pay. If the fee is a hardship for your family, please fill out our Scholarship/Assistance form and return it to the parish office.

Our Nursery program is staffed and welcomes children ages 1-5 during the 9:00 Mass on Sundays. Children engage in story time, song, and activities to help them build a relationship with Jesus and learn the stages of liturgy. This ministry is free to all families. Please sign in a few minutes prior to the start of Mass. Enter through the Sacristy door in the Gathering Space. During our other Masses, parents are welcome to accompany their children in the nursery while still being able to pray the Mass through the TV monitor in the nursery.
