We believe the parents are the primary religious educators of their children. In the St. Paul Faith Formation Program we recognize a responsibility to help the parents in their duty to provide religious education for their children who are not attending St. Paul School.
Classes are held for grades 1-10, September - May, on Wednesdays from 6:15 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
All eligible children of St. Paul Parish family receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation and the Sacrament of the Eucharist for the first time in the second grade. The responsibility to continue receiving these sacraments by the child/children belongs to the parents. Neither the school nor Faith Formation Program will necessarily provide for these sacraments, other than the first Celebration.
The Sacrament of the first Reconciliation is celebrated in January; the First Eucharist is celebrated in April. In the Faith Formation Program, the child must have completed first grade Faith Formation.
Confirmation is the third sacrament of the initiation into the church. Our program, consisting of grades 8-10 is a three-year commitment. Course work, related preparation and spiritual guidance assist the students in becoming adult members of the parish community. The Sacrament of the Confirmation is bestowed by the Bishop of the La Crosse Diocese.
The St. Paul Youth Group will meet Wednesdays 7:30 - 8:30pm in the church basement.
The Youth Group will provide social, sevice, and spiritual experiences for students in grades 6 - 12. COME JOIN US!
