Learning to Love is our K-8 Catechesis program.  It takes place on Sundays after the Noon Mass at Our Lady of Lourdes and runs until 2:30pm.  This is an opportunity you don’t want to pass up for your child or grandchild! It is called Learning to Love because we will teach your child to Know God, Love God, and Serve Him!  Learning to Love like Jesus is a lifelong process!

EDGE is our Middle School Youth Group and it will run at the same time as Learning to Love.  

Our Life Teen Youth Group program is available for our high schoolers; this group will meet on Tuesdays at Prince of Peace from 6:30p-8:30p.

Learning to Love- K-8th Religious Education

"Learning to Love" is a class-based religious education for Kindergarten through eighth grade.  We will be using the Faith and Life Series by Ignatius Press combined with the efforts of wonderful volunteer catechists.  The goal of the program is to introduce and strengthen the invitation to the Christian life.  By presenting an authentic encounter with Jesus Christ, through the Church, the Sacraments, the teachings of Christ, and a relationship with Him, we aim to begin a lifelong journey of Faith.  



EDGE provides a safe fun place for youth to find solid Catholic community, to get answers to their questions about faith, and, most importantly, to experience Jesus in a profound and personal way.  It is part of the international Life Teen Youth Ministry movement.

Life Teen 9th-12th Youth Group

As a Eucharist-centered movement within the Roman Catholic Church, Life Teen leads teenagers and their families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. With the Blessed Virgin Mary as our intercessor and guide, Life Teen seeks to unleash the fullness of the Sacramental power present within the young Church.

We also have a one-year Sacrament Preparation program for Baptism as well as for First Holy Communion and Confirmation.  Confirmation takes place normally in 3rd grade here in the Diocese of Phoenix.
