Youth Faith Formation
Our children’s spiritual formation is critical as we help them grow in knowledge of their faith and to learn to live as Jesus taught us. The program covers first grade through high school. Children are prepared for the sacraments of Reconciliation, First Holy Communion and Confirmation. Our program provides classroom teaching on Wednesdays during the school year. In addition to teaching the doctrine of the church, our program includes prayer, service projects, Scripture readings and other active learning methods so that our students have an opportunity to live their faith and share in traditional Catholic practices.
We invite all Stella Maris parents to enroll their children in our Youth Faith Formation program. Registration forms are sent to parents in September. If you did not receive a registration form and would like to register your child/children, please contact the Faith Formation Coordinator, Linda Cummer at 920-421-2195 or the Egg Harbor office at 920-868-3241. All are welcomed!

Students in grades 1-8 are transported directly after school from Sevastopol and Gibraltar Schools to our Baileys Harbor site; parents pick their children up at 5:30 pm in Baileys Harbor.
