Children’s Formation 

Children & Youth Formation

Children and Youth Formation at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church are centered around teaching God’s truth from the Bible. Growing and nurturing every child’s relationship with God is our goal. We strive to instill in our youth a love for Jesus as we aim to extend His love and service throughout our local community and the world. We provide fun and transformative experiences where children grow strong Christ centered relationships with one another and a deep love for God. We are most successful when we partner with parents and give them the resources they need to raise strong, healthy families in this ever changing world.

Children’s Liturgy

Offered on Sundays at the 9:00am Mass, we provide Children’s Liturgy for any child who has not received First Communion. The goal is to communicate the message of the Sunday readings in a way that the children can understand. We are always looking for volunteers to help lead these sessions. If you are interested, please contact Brandon Halvorsen or 307-215-8786 

Totus Tuus Summer Program

Totus Tuus is a 5-day summer program offered as a Tri-Parish Program. Four college aged missionaries travel the state sharing their faith with our children. The program has rich content and lots of fun! Summer 2024 dates TBD. Please continue to check back for details!

Sacramental Preparation

Typically, First Reconciliation and First Communion are received in 2nd Grade. Confirmation is a two-year preparation process that begins in 7th grade and ends with the reception of the sacrament in the spring of 8th Grade. Classes are held for both sacraments on Sunday mornings from 10:15am-11:20am. For more information, please see our page about those respective sacraments. 

If your child missed the sacrament during the regular year of reception, please contact Brandon Halvorsen to discuss options for preparing your child for the sacrament. You may also call 307-215-8786 with questions.
