This includes the Family Mass schedule and other family events. For more information regarding registration, please contact the Faith Formation Office at 508.255.1257.

Youth Ministry

Below are specific programs for our youth. We also encourage students who are interested in additional service projects, such as Project Maine or Habitat for Humanity.

Teen Nites:
Designated evenings of outreach and service for students in grades 9 and 10 who are preparing for Confirmation.

Teen Mentors:
High school students who have been confirmed are encouraged and are welcome to assist in the faith formation programs as mentors.

Altar Serving:
Students are welcome to join this ministry after receiving their First Communion and through their High School years. Each month the families are contacted to determine their availability to serve for the month. This offers each family to commit to this special ministry while being able to accommodate the family's busy schedules.

Summer Bible Camp:
Usually held the 1st week of August (9:00am & 12:00pm) for children 5 thru 10 years old. Junior Camp Leader Assistants for students 11 years old or older are needed to help guide the younger children through their activities.

Adult Ministry

Seasonal programs are offered for the on-going spiritual and religious education of adults. These are posted in the bulletin. All are welcome to attend.


Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults provides classes for adults who wish to learn more about the Catholic Faith. This process instructs and prepares adults on their journey to becoming full members of the Catholic Church.
