Learning! Enrichment! And Prayer!

LEAP is our parish faith formation / religious education program for both children and adults. Leap offers an opportunity to grow in faith for everyone from our youngest preschoolers to our oldest great-grandparents. All are welcome: kids, moms and dads, singles, grandmas and grandpas, aunts and uncles, babies and toddlers.

LEAP activities are held on Wednesday evenings from 5:00 to 7:30 pm, beginning with a meal in the church lower level. The meal will be provided by the parish and served by various church groups. There is no cost for this meal. At 6:15 the food will be cleared away and everyone will proceed to their class or session.

Adult Sessions: All adult sessions will be held in the Education Center. See more on adult sessions below.

Children’s Classes: Preschool, kindergarten, and grades 1, 2 and 3 will meet in the Education Center. Grades 4 and 5 will participate in a program called “The Edge” and will meet in our Youth Room.

Note: “Life Teen” for our youth in grades 6 – 12 meets Sunday evenings. See the Life Teen listing for further information.

Classes/sessions for everyone will begin at 6:30 and will end promptly at 7:30 pm.

Child Care is available in the Church Lower Level.

Our nursery for babies and toddlers is located in our church lower level in the “quiet corner”. There is no charge for child care. We invite the parents of our little ones to take advantage of this service, and to join us for some learning, enrichment and prayer.

Adult Sessions

Adult sessions will include four topics of study; each will be six weeks long.  See the Bulletin for upcoming sessions.

Watch the bulletin for LEAP “Sunday Fun Days” and other activities.
