Faith Formation

The Saint Patrick Faith Formation Committee is committed to providing opportunities for lifelong learning for all parishioners. Through sacramental preparation, faith formation, and spiritual development, we continuously strive to be a vibrant, Christ-centered, faith community.

Faith Formation classes are offered to public school students in the Cedar Falls area.

St. Patrick Catholic School and Columbus Catholic High School enroll year round and provide religious instruction during the school day. Please note that Confirmation preparation should be completed through Saint Patrick Parish. 

We offer many Faith Formation opportunities for adults, including Bible study group meetings, special events such as our Annual Retreat, talks by Father Colter, Teams of Our Lady (TOOL), Young Adult Ministry (YAM), and more.
