Education & Formation 


​​Family Faith Formation with Children 


Our God Lives! - Classes Mondays and Tuesdays at 6:00 p.m.

The hope and mission of "Our God Lives" is to offer a genuine and inclusive faith experience for the young members of St. Paul's Newman Center. Inclusive of parents and family members, we strive to provide our children the opportunity to experience their Catholic identity and values while learning the teachings of our Catholic faith. "Our God Lives" employs the reading of scripture, the teaching of key catechetical concepts, and hands-on, interactive student participation. Along with attending the Tuesday evening gatherings, families are highly encouraged to attend weekly Mass with their children.


Parents are invited and encouraged to stay and participate with their children in the weekly Monday or Tuesday evening learning sessions. Older siblings and family members, including grandparents, are also welcome to attend and participate.

Registration fees are $30 for one child, $50 for two or more children (this includes youth participating in the Middle School group) and can be brought to the first gathering or mailed. Please note that no one will be turned away due to their inability to pay.
