Completed Faith Formation Registrations with fee can be dropped off
at the Parish Office during regular office hours (Monday – Thursday
9:30 am to 12 and 1 pm to 4:30pm) OR you can mail it to the church to
the attention of Nancy Hartshorn OR you can drop it off in our locked
Kiosk in the gathering space of Brownstein Hall when you come to Mass.


Attendance Policy:

When a family registers their children and teens for Faith Formation, we know they desire quality materials, faith filled experiences and a greater understanding of our rich Catholic faith. As parents, you are the primary educators of the faith and Ave Maria Faith Formation offers support and guidance in passing down the faith to your children.

For this to happen, attendance is crucial. We have defined participating in Faith Formation classes as attending a minimum of 80% of the classes or no more than 3 missed classes.

Please reach out to the Children’s Coordinator (PreK-5th grade) or the Youth Coordinator (6th-12th grade) if your family is struggling with fulfilling this attendance criteria or to allow the staff to assist you in your individual family circumstances.  There are make-up guidelines to help if needed.
