Faith Formation at St. Nicholas

“Catechesis is an education in the faith of children, young people, and adults which includes especially the teaching of Christian doctrine imparted… with a view to initiating the hearers into the fullness of Christian life.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, #5)

Realizing that the aim of catechesis “is to lead believers to a deeper knowledge and love of Christ and the Church and a firm commitment to follow him.,” (National Catechetical Directory) the goal of the faith formation process is to assist parents in the religious formation of their children by providing religious formation sessions for students Age 4 through Grade 12.
