Faith Formation for Children

Faith Formation sessions for children Grades one through eight, meet Monday evenings from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM  at the St. Paul School building. Our first session is August 29th.  Our sessions go to the end of April. The sessions are open to all children of the parish, especially those not attending St. Paul Catholic School.

The ministry of Faith Formation requires adults who are willing to make a weekly commitment to serve as a Catechist or Catechist-aide.  Catechists are asked to attend several planning sessions during the year and work toward certification by participating in the DCCP sessions (Diocesan Catechist Certification Program). Teens are encouraged to volunteer as aides in the classroom.  All Catechists,including teens over the age of 15 years must be fingerprinted. If you are interested in this ministry, please contact our Faith Formation Office at (352) 787-6354 ext. 238 or e-mail Sr. Ruth Platte at
