Below are the Sponsor Form and the role of a Sponsor. The Sponsor Form needs to be filled out by your Sponsor and signed by his or her Pastor. Please remember a sponsor needs to be 16 years old or older and needs to be in good standing with the Catholic Church. It is best to ask your sponsor as soon as possible and not wait last minute. The Pastor of your sponsor’s parish may want to meet with your sponsor resulting in your sponsor needing to wait a few weeks before he or she can get an appointment.

Our Mission

The parish community of St. John Bosco is especially attentive to the spiritual growth of our youth.  Religious education focuses on the faith formation of each child.  Volunteer catechists teach the truths of the Catholic Church and believe that Jesus Christ is the center of catechesis.  All are welcome to pray, learn and share in bringing our youth into communion with God.

The six fundamental tasks of catechesis included in our Children’s Faith Formation Program are:
.   Promoting knowledge of the faith
.   Liturgical education
.   Moral formation
.   Teaching to pray
.   Education for Community Life
.   Missionary initiation
