The St. Ann Faith Formation program is intended for children of registered parishioners from kindergarten through 8th grade. Instruction is offered throughout the school year to support our Catholic families as the first modelers of the faith to their children, while also guiding St. Ann’s young people in a journey toward a close, meaningful relationship with Our Lord.

Working together with families, we hope to foster an awareness of God’s grace and a desire to respond to that grace through developmentally appropriate lessons and activities. Classes are intended to promote the values of faith while laying the foundation for a lifetime of mercy, hope, and wonder in our creator.

To enhance the weekly lessons, we use the Sophia Institute, Spirit of Truth Series in grades K-7. Spirit of Truth is a sequential and informative presentation of what we as Catholics believe, live, and teach. Children of each grade level will receive lessons in prayer formation, scripture, lives of the saints, sacraments, and traditions of the Church. In addition, the St. Ann Faith Formation program offers sacramental preparation for children in second and eighth grade who are preparing for sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist, or Confirmation.


Our Lady's Handmaidens is a weekly gathering for young ladies ages 11 to 18 to learn about and grow in virtue. We strive to model ourselves after Our Lady as Handmaidens of the Lord.

We meet every Wednesday during the school year from 6:45 - 8:15 pm in the St. Ann Allen Center gym.

In addition to our weekly meetings, we have a number of annual events, including a weekend retreat, a Mother's Day tea party, Christmas caroling, and more!
