Faith formation

The Faith Formation Programs at St. Joseph are centered on the teachings of Jesus and his church. All of our classes for the children and youth use materials that have been approved by the Local Bishop and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) Religious Education Committee and appear on the USCCB Conformity List. Each year we evaluate the programs that are used to make sure that the needs of our children/youth are being fulfilled and that the highest quality of all religious education experience is being fulfilled.

The catechists, aides and staff are involved in the ongoing certification classes, retreats’ and seminars that are provided by the Parish Director of Faith Formation and the Diocese of Colorado Springs. We work toward the Mastery level of religious education certification by all that are involved in our Faith Formation Programs.

Classes are held, during the school year, for the children, ages 3 through 6th grade, every Sunday morning from 9:00 AM till 9:50 AM and from 11:00 AM till 11:50 AM.
