Youth Faith Formation

Family-Based Faith Formation

More information coming about the home/family-based faith formation program at St. John's. Please contact our Dominican Liaison, Kelli Wood ( with questions.


"Fraternus is a Catholic brotherhood for all ages.  For over a decade Fraternus has been recovering the lost art of mentoring, harnessing the power of brotherly men and fathers, and teaching the virtues rooted in Christ as the path to authentic manliness."

St. John's Fraternus Chapter aims to help men of the parish recognize their brotherhood and foster it; equip these men to be effective mentors of the young men in the parish; and, in this context of brotherhood, study and develop Christian virtue.

Fraternus meets at Harm Field on Wednesdays @ 6:30 PM. Check the bulletin for contacts and schedule updates.

Other Youth Faith Formation

As children grow, Creeds and Canons and Donuts and Dogma become valuable additions to their faith formation at home. Don't hesitate to bring the whole family!

Also consider using the recordings of Creeds and Canons and/or Father's Homilies as an enrichment to your home-based faith formation.
