Faith Formation Homepage

Faith is a lifelong journey of friendship with God.  Just as a friendship deepens and matures as friends get to know one another better, our relationship with God deepens and matures as we come to know God better.  When we grow in our understanding of God and God's Church, we can deepen our commitment as followers of Christ. 

At St. Joseph Parish we provide faith formation opportunities for all ages, so that we all can grow in our understanding and love of the faith.  Please use the links on the right to find out more about our programs and how you can participate.

We always offer Faith Formation classes every year for every grade - even after children receive First Communion. Classes DO continue for returning or new students. We have classes in place for grades 1 to 6, Middle School Ministry for grades 7 & 8, and Youth Ministry for those in high school.  Lastly, for young adults out of high school, and for adults (ages 18 and up), who are interested in receiving sacraments, we offer the RCIA program (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults).  

2022 Registration Packets are now available to pick up from the Parish Center during office hours Monday to Friday 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, at 2100 Pear Street. Pinole CA 94564. Additionally, the PDF copies for the 2022 Registration Packets for grades 1 to 6, Middle School Ministry for grades 7 & 8, and Youth Ministry (1st year) grades 9-12 are available to download from our Campsite page at https://campsite.bio/ymsjcpinole. The link button is at the TOP of the page, and is titled "2022 Registration Forms - ALL grades". Please note  that classes BEGIN the week of September 11-14 with the mandatory student-parent meetings in the church.
