Children Reading the Holy Bible

What is Religious Education/Faith Formation?

At Our Lady of the Snows, we believe it is very important to offer our children the necessary education to build a solid base nurtured in our Christian beliefs and our Catholic tradition.

With the current pandemic, we are continuing with a 100% virtual program. Children will not be required to attend class on site. Rather, they will connect with a computer or tablet, at a designated date and time and interact with a catechist and other students to learn about our faith.


In order to enhance the child's Christian faith, we require that children attend Sunday Mass with parents or view it online.


At Our Lady of the Snows, we are nurturing the faith of tomorrow's missionary disciples!

What is RCIA?

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is designed for adults who, after hearing the mystery of Christ proclaim, consciously and freely seek the living God and enter the way of faith and conversion as the Holy Spirit opens their hearts. 


For those who have been baptized but still need to complete their First Communion and Confirmation, please bring a copy of your Baptismal Certificate.

For more information, please call the Parish Office at (773) 582-2266 or email
