Faith Formation

Faith Formation at Saint Patrick includes a variety of ongoing activities and special events. The Saint Patrick Faith Formation Commission 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 preschool and public school students. St. Patrick Catholic School and Columbus Catholic High School enroll year round and provide religious instruction during the school day. Confirmation preparation for all parish students should be completed here at Saint Patrick. Want to be a catechist? Check out our infographic for details.

We offer many Faith Formation opportunities for adults of all ages. Adults interested in joining the Catholic Church are invited to take part in our annual Catholic Faith for Adults (CFFA) Series which begins every January.
