In September 2017, St. Michael's Parish implemented a new faith formation curriculum. The Diocese of Buffalo rolled out an update for religious education knows as "Forming Disciples." The new model combines our existing classroom model with additional family focused dates----yes that means the ENTIRE Parish Family!
We have moved our middle and high school program to earlier in the day (right after 10:30 Sunday Mass) for families who have youth in both programs. Some high school confirmation events will still occur at different times throughout the year.
