Catholic Family Formation and Evangelization (CaFFE)

The St. Norbert Parish Catholic Family Formation and Evangelization (CaFFE) strives to share with young parishioners and families of St. Norbert Parish the love of God our Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. It is for children in 1st-6th Grades who attend a school where formation in the Catholic faith is not a regular part of the curriculum. We currently have 2 options for CaFFE:

  1. Regular CaFFE meets on Sunday mornings from 10:10-11:20AM in the school building between the 9AM and 11:30AM Masses. These classes are taught by volunteer teachers
  2. Family Program – Entire families meeting one Sunday a month for formation and do required home study on the intervening weeks. Space is limited for this option. 1st – 6th Grade only. 7th Grade  confirmation candidates must to Regular CaFFE.

**Note – We have an adapted class that meets every Sunday for children with special needs taught by a certified Special Education teacher. Please contact the director for more information.
