Bethlehem Faith-Formation and Sacrament Prep (Grades K–4)

Bethlehem is a family faith-formation program that assists parents in preparing their children to live the Catholic faith. The program includes weekly grade-level children’s classes, parent faith-formation sessions, and family sessions. 

For those who prefer a “safer-at-home” program, there is a parent-led option that includes a textbook, activity materials, an optional online component, periodic parent meetings, and periodic check-in or review of completed materials.


The Bethlehem program also prepares children to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Confirmation and Eucharist.
