Chaplain Associate for Children's Faith Formation


Dear Families,


Happy Advent! As we anticipate Christmas, we also await Jesus’ second coming. We have been gathering faithfully and learning so much about God and His Kingdom. What a joy it has been to witness the growth in the children!


If you are new, we welcome you and invite you to register with us so that you may receive our weekly newsletters, where you will find out more about our Advent/Christmas events.


We look forward to seeing you!


With warm regards,

The Children’ Faith Formation Commission & Chaplain Kiona Lookingbill

LESSON & RESOURCES: Dec. 5, 2021


For All Saints’ (Sun)Day, our CFF children made paper puppets of their favorite saints! In this video, they introduce them. Please check them out as it’s packed with fun and good information. Major thanks to Ronan Goeke for putting the video together!


The Children's Faith Formation at St. John's relies on the participation of volunteers. Please view the video below and consider volunteering either in person or on Zoom as your schedule allows. You do not need to have a child in the program to volunteer; all parishioners are welcome. Contact Chaplain Kiona Lookingbill at with questions or to volunteer.
