Catechesis aims at putting "people . . . in communion . . . with Jesus Christ: only he can lead us to the love of the Father in the Spirit and make us share in the life of the Holy Trinity." (Catechism of the Catholic Church # 427)


The Faith Formation programs of St. Athanasius Parish provide developmentally appropriate catechesis for parishioners at all stages of life and spiritual development. The goal of all programs is to lead people into ever deepening relationship with God through Jesus Christ.



Liturgy of the Word for Children


Liturgy of the Word for Children is offered every Sundayat the 9:30 AM Sunday Mass. Adult leaders lead the children downstairs to the Parish Hall for a child-friendly presentation of the Gospel, plus interactive activities. Parents normally remain in Church, but parents or older siblings may accompany children who need their reassurance.
