Children's Education

Children's Faith Formation 

Faith Formation is a lifelong journey! We are thrilled to help your child(ren) grow in their relationship with our Lord! Whether your child is needing Weekly Catechesis or Sacramental Preparation, we are excited to walk on this journey with you and your family.

PreK through 8th Grade Education (CRE)

Combined with St. James Catholic Church (Bartlesville), our children in PreK through 5th Grade come together to learn more about our Catholic Faith and to become Disciples of Jesus Christ!

First Communion Sacramental Preparation

Our Sacramental Preparation program is designed as a faith formation journey for the kids of our parish and St. James. Typically, students in the 2nd Grade receive their First Holy Communion. 

For your child to receive their First Communion, he or she must be enrolled either in our CRE Faith Formation program or at St. John Catholic School. 

Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) 

Children’s Liturgy of the Word presents the Word of God in a fun, interactive, and age-appropriate way to children in Pre-K to fourth grade. The children are escorted to the youth room upstairs after the opening prayer of the 10:30 a.m. Sunday Mass during the school year.

Totus Tuus

Totus Tuus is a Summer Catechetical Youth Program sponsored by the Diocese of Tulsa and Eastern Oklahoma. Totus Tuus is Latin for "Totally Yours!" A motto initiated by St. John Paul II to be "Totally Yours" to Christ through the intercession of our Blessed Mother. A team of four enthusiastic college-age youth come to our Parish and bring our faith alive. The program includes: catechesis, skits, games, music, daily Mass, Confession, and opportunities for youth to come closer to Christ.
