Children's Faith Formation

We provide an array of opportunities to support Parents, God Parents, Guardians, relatives and friends in your efforts to foster a strong  foundation in the Catholic Faith within your own family and our church family.

Along with opportunities to learn Catholic prayers, doctrine and traditions in an atmosphere of joy and gratitude, our program strives to promote an attitude of service to each other and to the community.

Training for Volunteers

Our programs and community wouldn't be possible with out the many dedicated wonderful volunteers who share their gifts with the community!  

Our goal at the Parish of St. Marianne Cope is to provide more than adequate training and resources to support our volunteers in their efforts.  We know  that most of our volunteers are also parents, husbands, wives and grandparents as well as full time career people.  All of these qualities are what add such richness to our community!  With this in mind we try to make all training and enrichment opportunities and convenient as possible!

All volunteers who work with children or with vulnerable adults attend the mandatory Diocese Training for Creating a Safe Environment.

All volunteer Catechists (religion teachers) who commit to teaching a class or those who commit to leading in prayer our Liturgy of the Word with Children are continuously invited to opportunities to grow in faith.  Such volunteers are invited to workshops offered through out the diocese and enrichment opportunities in our parish.
