Lifelong Faith Formation

Elementary


Elementary Faith Formation
St. Peter Damian’s Elementary Faith Formation Program recognizes and reinforces the understanding that parents are the primary faith educators for their children. Our program seeks to guide and assist families on the important and essential faith journey of their children. By living out the mission of our parish, Learn, Serve, Celebrate and Share our children will become involved and know that they are valued and contributing members of our faith community. Our elementary program is designed for children in Kindergarten through sixth grade.
The text books for the children are Christ Our Life published by Loyola Press
