Our Programs

The children’s program runs from September through the end of April on Wednesday’s from 6:00p.m. until 7:15p.m. for all grades. All classes will be held in St. Stephen School building behind the church.

Our children’s program uses the Christ our Life series from Loyola Press. It is a spiral curriculum with each level’s contents building on the previous year’s focus, offering continuity for the children. It is Scripture based and with Scripture and doctrine integrated in each lesson, the children can more easily relate Catholic beliefs, sacred Tradition, and most importantly their faith to their lives! It is based on the four pillars of Catechism, CREED, SACRAMENTS, COMMANDMENTS, and PRAYER.

Our Sacrament program for children is a two year process (children must have been enrolled in a Catholic formation program at least one year prior) to their year of instruction for reception of First Reconciliation, Holy Communion and Confirmation.

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)

Holy Trinity invites any non-Catholic adult wishing to join the church to this program as well as anyone who has been away for a while and may have missed Confirmation or anyone needing a refresher on the Catholic faith. A team will lead this process of full initiation into the church and meetings will be held on Monday evenings. Call Denise at the parish office 984-2689 for more information and to schedule and interview.
