to make disciples,

Faith Formation at Nativity Catholic Church
As a parish community, we strive to grow in our faith in many ways and at many levels. One important form of this growth comes through catechesis, that is, the teaching of the catechism, or simply "religion class". As of this writing (Lent 2013) we offer the foll0wing catechetical programs:
First Communion Class for children in the 2nd, 3rd & 4th grade. More information.
Confirmation Preparation for young Catholics in the 8th through 11th grades. More information.
Theology for Young Catholics for ages 15-29. Further information.
We are working on other offerings for adults and children.
