Faith Formation

Children and Youth Ages 4 through high school

The program runs September through May with a break after the last Sunday of Advent, resuming on the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord.

Sundays: St. Benedict Parish after the Liturgy of the Word

Second and Fourth Saturdays (September-May): 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM, Home School Palo Alto


Those interested in becoming followers of Jesus Christ in the Roman Catholic Church may arrange with the pastoral team to prepare for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. Programs are available for those who wish to be baptized, to receive First Holy Communion, to be confirmed, and to learn more about the Roman Catholic Church.

Adult Faith Formation is presented on the second Sunday of the month, while the first Sunday of the month gives all parishioners an opportunity to shape our ministry through a Town Hall meeting.
