St. Irene Catholic Community is blessed to welcome your family to Family Faith Formation for 2021-2022!  We thank you for giving us the opportunity to share our faith with your family. 


All grade levels meeting on the same day and new lower tuition rates!

The goals of St. Irene’s Faith Formation remain the same:

  • Equip and support our parents/guardians who are the first and primary teachers of the faith in their families.
  • Lead our families to develop a close personal relationship with Jesus Christ, our friend, Lord and Saviour.
  • Prepare children and families to receive the Sacraments as a part of their ongoing journey in faith.
  • Increase family participation in daily prayer, weekly Mass, Reconciliation and the rich traditions of our Catholic faith.
  • Foster and establish family involvement and connections with the community of St. Irene – our family of God.

The tuition schedule is as follows:


$250. for one child

$330. for two children

$400. for three or more children

Other Fees

Sacrament materials for First Eucharist in 2nd grade and Confirmation in 8th grade = $65. per child receiving the sacrament

Please consider becoming a TUITION ANGEL by making a donation for those with financial hardship.  If you would like for tax purposes, please write a separate check.  We are grateful for any amount donated.   

Tuition and Sacrament fees pay for only a portion of the actual religious education costs. We ask for your generous support of the Faith Community of St. Irene during our Sunday Mass offering.

The Faith Formation Program for grades 1-8 runs smoothly because of VOLUNTEERS like YOU!  We need people to volunteer their service in several areas. Please click the "Volunteer" button under the "Registration" button to look over the list and see where you can offer to be of help!  Thank you! If you have any questions, please contact me in the Faith Formation Office.

THANK YOU for your commitment to your child’s Faith Formation!  Please don’t hesitate to call or email with any questions.  I look forward to meeting all of you! 

God Bless,
