Faith Formation

The first catechists in any child’s life are the family members with whom he or she lives. What happens at home – both positive and negative – provides lessons for life. In the family, faith is shared as part of the unfolding of daily life. The home or “domestic church” provides a real place in which a child learns to live his or her faith as well as understanding it.

Our goal is to create a program of lifelong faith formation that is centered in and flows out of the events of Church life. It embraces all ages and generation, promotes faith growth at home and promotes participation in Church life.
Faith Formation classes begin in October at St. Stephen for grades K-8, and are held on Wednesday evenings in St. Stephen's Family Center. The Confirmation Classes are joined with our pastorate, and take place on Sunday evenings at St. Thomas in Beloit.

To register your children for Religious Education, or if you have any questions please contact the Director of Faith Formation Heather Schneider ([email protected]) or the Parish Office (608-676-2241).

 See the SCHEDULE tab/page for dates and times.

Thank you to the catechists who volunteered to teach the children on Wednesday evenings 
during this School Year!

We are always looking for more individuals who are will to be substitute teachers!
