Elementary Formation encompasses children in grades 1-5. We welcome the opportunity to help your children grow in their faith through our Formation classes and events. For information regarding classes, please click on Registration Information.
Please go to Sacramental Preparation for the following sacraments: Baptism, First Reconciliation, First Eucharist and Confirmation.

Parents are the primary educators of their children and are invited to volunteer in various ways with the Elementary Formation Program. All parents are welcome to observe and participate in their child's class as their schedule permits. Throughout the formation year, parents are encouraged to attend scheduled prayer services, holiday parties, and liturgical celebrations and events.
Catechists, Catechist Assistants and other non-teaching volunteers
Volunteers are the heart of our ministry. We could not offer the 45+ classes and family events without the time, talent and dedication of the many people who help throughout the year. Please consider joining this vital ministry. There are many ways in which teens and adults can help. Time commitment varies from occasional to weekly. Training and materials are provided. Please contact our office to learn the many ways in which you can participate.
Protecting God's Children
The Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston requires all volunteers 18 and older to attend a "Protecting God's Children" session which addresses child abuse. This training is mandated by the Archdiocese for adults who work with children on a regular ongoing basis (includes weekly volunteers). Registration is handled through www.virtus.org. If you need assistance with the online registration or have any questions, please contact our office.
