Youth Faith Formation
As parents/guardians YOU are the most important, and primary teachers, of your children. When your child is absent from a scheduled Faith Formation, or if class is cancelled, or it is a week that your group is not scheduled to meet, you are responsible for covering the appropriate material supplied to you quarterly. This, along with weekly Mass attendance, will ensure that your children remain current, receive the 30hrs of Faith Formation advised by the Diocese of Rochester, and continue to grow in their faith.

Youth Faith Formation: K - 8th grade
Faith Formation meets twice a month, and materials are provided for off-week learning at home.
We begin with each session with large group opening prayer, then split up into volunteer catechist led classes according to age.
Faith Formation is timed perfectly for attendance at 10:30a Mass at St. Matthew Church and Children’s Liturgy of the Word
