Catholic Formation is a lifelong process and our goal at St. Agnes is to provide the kind of foundation for our children and youth that supports a desire to live out our faith daily.  We offer weekly classes for children in kindergarten through Confirmation.

Our CFF program strives to stand on Jesus Christ and the Trinity by living the example of our Catholic faith which Jesus gave us, passing on our beautiful faith to our children, and constantly seeking out and teaching others to seek the answers to the following:

  • How can we meet Jesus?
  • How can we know Jesus?
  • How can we love Jesus?

To help our young people build a foundation of faith, we integrate catechetical and curriculum-based learning with service, experiential, and retreat opportunities in order to build up both a knowledge of the Church and Her teachings; as well as foster a foundational encounter with the Living God.  We prepare children for First Reconciliation, First Communion, and Confirmation.

All staff and volunteers who work with youth are required to complete the Diocese of Wheeling Charleston’s Safe Environment program.  All adult parishioners are encouraged to complete the program to increase awareness and provide a safe environment for the children of our parish and larger community.
