Faith Formation

Welcome to Our Lady of Peace Faith Formation Page. We are excited and ready to grow in God’s love and grace. Our children will come to know Jesus through prayer services, scripture, sacraments, and witness.

Parents can assist us by bring positive and encouraging. Share your faith with you child tell them how you experience God in your life, and take them to Mass.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word is held on Sundays, during the school year.
Children are dismissed from church following the opening prayer. They will hear the Sunday readings along with the Gospel from the children’s Lectionary and learn how it relates to their lives. They will return to the congregation for the prayers of the faithful.
