Children's Formation (K3-8th Grade)

Welcome! We are so glad you are here, desiring to lead your child(ren) to Christ.  

We gather together as a tri-parish collaborative (Christ King, St. Bernard, and St. Pius X) to offer the children of our communities a place to encounter God and grow in a life of discipleship through the Sacramental life of the Church.  

This will be realized through the intentional transition to a tri-parish formation process that allows the children (and adults for that matter!) in our communities to fall in love with God. This will be done through the gradual implementation of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, a formation process that provides a prepared, age-appropriate environment (Atrium) and invites the child to cultivate their relationship with God through encounters with the Scriptures, the Sacraments, the Liturgy, and personal and communal prayer.  

Want to find out more? Contact Samantha El-Azem, Director of Formation for Children.

2017-2018 Formation Year

This year, we will be offering two opportunities for weekly formation for those in the children of the tri-parish collaborative. 

  • Sunday Mornings, 9:15AM-10:15AM at Christ King Parish
  • Sunday Mornings, 9:00AM-9:50AM at St. Pius Parish

*Note: We are aware that it is hard for many St. Bernard families to go to either of these times. If this is the case for your family, please contact Samantha El-Azem to discuss other options.

The registration fee for this year is $90 per child, $180 per family. You can either pay online (Coming Soon!) or by check (made out to Christ King Parish).
