St. Ignatius of Loyola is a growing family centered community with many spirit-filled opportunities.  We offer many program options for children and adults.




The Faith Formation Office is excited to offer many options for the upcoming, 2021-2022 school year.  All of our class, except Home Program, will be in-person classes, here on the parish campus. If you have a child that is of the age to be receiving 1st Reconciliation/1st Eucharist or Confirmation(10th grade), they need to have completed the required prep year in order to enroll.   

If you have a child that is going to be in the 1st Reconciliation/1st Eucharist classes this year, you will only need to sign up for that class and not the 2nd grade class in addition. This year, we will be doing a hybrid of the two classes. If your child did not participate in Faith Formation classes in 1st grade, please sign up for 2nd grade classes and then the following year, they can enroll in sacrament classes.

Registration is provided through our new online portal.  Once you click the link of the date and class you want, you will be asked to sign into your account.  If you have not made a account, you will be asked to do so. When you create a account, please make sure you use your legal name, not a nickname, and the email address you provided to the church that way the system can quickly recognize your account and not give a error message.  If you have issues creating your account, please contact the Faith Formation Office. 

We are also looking for those who would be able to be a Catechist or Aide for our classes.  We do offer discounts for those who are able to help! If you are interested in helping click here
