Welcome to St. Alexander’s Faith Formation!    

Saint Alexander’s Faith Formation program is an ongoing invitation to the life-long journey of relationship, love and service to our God, His message, and His people. This journey is family centered with special attention to our children grades Pre-K through Grade 12, inclusive of the sacraments of Holy Communion, Reconciliation and Confirmation.

As we begin a new journey each year, we want the communication between  families and the Faith Formation program to be open and consistent, being available to your suggestions  and needs. We will strive to model and extend the joy and love of our God in every lesson to our children and families. All lessons will begin with prayer. In addition, another goal is to provide parent, child and catechist faith sharing experiences along the way.

Along with Father Rosenbaum, Deacons, families and ministries we extend a loving invitation to being our journey.  We look forward to serving you and your family with the Good News of Jesus as we grow in faith together.
