Welcome to Family Formation at St. Ann! Our program is a family-based catechetical program that provides the opportunity for families (with children of all ages) to grow together in the understanding and love of God in order to fully live the Catholic faith.
Junior Believers are children in grades K-5th who come together to have fun while learning about their faith! Junior Believers meet several times a year either on our St. Ann campus or in our surrounding community! Parent help is a must – leading our children in their spiritual growth!

Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) is an age-appropriate Liturgy of the Word offered for ages 4 to grade 5 during the 9:00am Mass. No pre-registration is necessary. All children are welcome and encouraged to attend.
During the Mass, as the Liturgy of the Word begins for the assembly, children are invited to accompany CLOW leaders to the Chapel to break open the word and pray in an interactive and age appropriate manner. They return to their parents before the Liturgy of the Eucharist
Volunteers are needed to share their faith with our youngest disciples! We need volunteers to lead with teaching the lesson each week, as well as to assist with the supervision of the children, and coordinate the timing of the program. This is a great opportunity for adults and High School students to help these eager youngsters learn the Word of the Lord.
Contact the office at 301-733-0410 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to volunteer with CLOW!
Part of our Family Formation Program, Our bridges program is designed for children ages (3-5th grade) who may have been baptized but due to differing family circumstances may not have had an opportunity to be further formed in the faith. It is a warm and welcoming environment where children are able to become competent in the basics of the Faith such that they will then be able to step in to full participation in their age-appropriate formation classrooms the following year. Please contact Amy Rohan at email@example.com or call 301-733-0410 x103 with any questions!!
Part of our RICA process, our RCIC program is a formation program for children over the age of reason who have not yet been baptized. This is a wonderful program where our unbaptized children learn the Faith and, upon readiness, will be baptized and receive their sacraments of Initiation. It is designed such that in subsequent years your child will fully participate in faith formation learning environment with their age appropriate classroom. Please contact Amy Rohan at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 301-733-0410 x103 with any questions!!
