Faith Formation

St. Louis de Montfort offers many opportunities for all to deepen in their faith and experience God’s personal love. Religious Education classes are offered in the Parish Center and in parish-based homes for grades 1-8. There are RCIA classes for those interested in becoming Catholic. As an additional alternative, there is also a Family Program offered several times each week on Sunday mornings and weeknights. In this way, the entire family can come together and share with their children about their faith. Throughout the year, the parish celebrates with all who prepare and receive the sacraments of baptism, first Reconciliation, first Holy Communion, and Confirmation, and in many other ways. There are many opportunities within the parish family to be involved with works of mercy, worship, justice and charity.
St. Louis de Montfort is very blessed to have an abundance of dedicated and experienced religious education teachers, along with parishioners who offer their time and talent in helping and accompanying others to deepen in their faith.
