Youth Faith Formation

All classes and events are canceled at this time.


We are offering make-your-own Advent wreaths again this year. Materials will be supplied in a packet with instructions the first Sunday of Advent. Please watch the bulletin and Facebook for more information.


Thank you for your continued support of our sock and underwear appeal. There is much need. We need both items in sizes for children, women, and men. The winter coats have been distributed to those in need. Thank you for helping to keep people warm this winter.


The November Family packet is ready for pick-up at the Rectory Office Monday through Friday, 7:30 am to 2 pm. If you
are unable to pickup at those times, please call Ruth Ellen at 518-758-1828.



Classes are offered for all age groups from Kindergarten through High School. Children wishing to make the sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation must attend classes to prepare them for celebrating these sacraments. Students learn about their faith and do community service projects to help those less fortunate. Please contact the Faith Formation Office at

518-758-1828 to register your child.
