“We all should strive to be saints. It is the responsibility of every parish to assist its parishioners in achieving that most worthy goal. At Holy Rosary, our Family Formation and continuing religious education programs can play an integral role in that process. All of our classes are taught by faithful, dedicated instructors, whom most of you know because they, too, are parishioners.
These instructors are required to make public declarations of their Fidelity and have generously offered their time and efforts to assist others in growing in knowledge of the Faith. Through this pamphlet, we invite you to explore the many classes we offer on your road to eternity. “
- Father C. Ryan McCarthy, pastor

Family Formation is a unique family catechesis program which promotes parents as the primary educators of their children in the Catholic Faith. Family Formation provides a challenging and creative curriculum that is family-based, includes adult catechesis and training for parents, is founded on the Truth and teachings of the Catholic Church, and is designed to make living the Faith a way of life and a life-long learning adventure.

The need to learn the Faith doesn't stop with the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation; rather, it continues throughout one's life.
All high school students are welcome to join our youth group. They meet once or twice a month during the school year for speakers, prayer, service opportunities and social activities.
Adult Faith Formation
On many evenings throughout the year, adults are invited to enrich their spiritual lives through lessons in Scripture, Church history and other Faith-related topics. These lessons are typically presented through a series of books, DVDs or CDs. Please watch our bulletin for details.
Holy Rosary offers Latin instruction to teens and adults. However, due to the cumulative nature of language acquisition, it has a progression and is not a class anyone can jump into at any time. A new course opens up about every three years. The course is not open to join at this time, but please contact the instructor, Rebecca Reneau (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information and to place your name on a interest list to be contacted when the next course is open for enrollment.
