Youth Faith Formation: Grades K to 5 & 1st Communion

The Evangelization Outreach Program at Our Lady of Grace offers religious instruction and Faith Formation for students in Kindergarten through 5th grade & bilingual classes. We also offer classes in preparation for the Sacrament of 1st Holy Communion (2nd Grade).

This year, our classes have been reformatted to adhere to all safety measures. On Saturdays, students and their families meet for outdoor Vigil Masses at 11:00am, followed immediately by mini-sessions, also held outdoors. Additional monthly family meetings are scheduled via Zoom.
