Allelu! is a brand-new, early childhood program with innovations that make it easy to engage every child and build his/her faith! Created by expert catechists and a child psychologist, Allelu! delivers a unique, multisensory experience that is manageable for any catechist—without extensive facility requirements or expensive training sessions.

Within this framework, the goals of Allelu! are to:

  • Teach young children about our Catholic faith.
  • Familiarize children with the Catholic sacraments, liturgical rituals, symbols, and seasons.
  • Help form children’s moral lives, standards and values.
  • Teach children how to pray.
  • Give children the words and tools they need to talk about God.

Who:          Families with children in grades K-5

Family Formation is a family-based catechetical program for families with children in grades K through 5 with an adult formation component enabling Catholic parents to be the primary educators of their children in the faith.  Family Formation combines a monthly church gathering (where children meet in grade-specific class settings while parents gather for adult catechesis and formation) and weekly family Home Lessons where parents, equipped with materials and an understanding of the lessons, teach their children the Faith.
