Family Faith Formation

Our Family Faith Formation program welcomes the whole family to attend together once each month. The session includes large group learning, small group peer discussions, service projects and/or prayer experiences.

Nine Sundays from 10:15 – 11:45 AM

2023/2024 dates: September 24, October 15, November 19, December 17, January 21, February 25, March 17, April 21 and May 19

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.

Welcoming the Little Ones
Our Welcoming the Little Ones program is for children ages 1-5 and takes place during the 9:00 and 11:00 Masses 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.
