Special Followers of Christ

A Ministry of St. Patrick

Special Followers of Christ

If you have a heart for serving some of our children with special needs as they pursue the Sacraments, please consider helping us in planning events and teaching our youth.

The Special Followers of Christ ministry is geared towards individuals who have difficulty learning in a regular classroom setting. Classes held at St. Patrick are on Saturday mornings a couple of times a month at 9:00 am. We offer classes in preparation for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Holy Communion, Confirmation, and we also offer continuing Faith Formation classes.

The one hour class is taught by two catechists and the lessons are planned to meet the needs of each individual. While the children are meeting in their classroom, parents meet in their own classroom with a speaker covering various topics. The speakers are usually a priest, deacon, or seminarian.

If you are interested in getting involved, contact the parish office.
