Faith Formation Classes for Grades K-8

St. John the Baptist offers weekly grade-specific classes for children in grades K through 8 who are not enrolled in Catholic school. The purpose of these sessions, which are taught by teams of volunteer catechists, is to supply each student with an increasing understanding of the basic tenets of our faith.

St. John the Baptist offers Faith Formation classes for children on Sundays, 10:15 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Families are encouraged to attend Mass together. To register your child for Faith Formation Classes, call the Parish Office at 301-622-1122 or download the registration forms, complete the forms, then submit them to the Parish office with payment.

To volunteer as a catechist, catechist’s aide or curriculum planner, contact the Director of Faith Formation.
