First Reconciliation/First Communion. See the drop-down menu item labeled Children at the top of our web site.

Grown and Flown is for parents of children ages 15-25. Are you wondering how to raise these mini-adults and keep your family connected? Would you like support from other Catholic parents? The Grown and Flown years begin when your oldest learns to drive and end when your youngest gets a first real apartment. It’s a time of huge transition for families and more and more a time when kids leave their faith. Parents spend time praying and reviewing an insightful book about these parenting years. Meets the fourth Thursday of each month from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Jeni Lengerich Pleiss

Infant Baptism Preparation is a one-on-one session for parents preparing for the baptism of their first child. Jeni Lengerich Pleiss

Marriage Preparation Sponsors assist couples preparing for marriage. The time commitment is one training session, and then you are asked to meet twice with each engaged couple. Jeni Lengerich Pleiss
