COVID-19 Update- TLC will look a little different this year as we have decided to implement a hybrid program. Student's classes will gather at St Johns every other week. 



Total Lifelong Catechesis (TLC) is a whole new way of understanding what our role and mission is as disciples of Jesus Christ!


We should be spending our entire lives growing in an intimate relationship with God. The reality of Christian growth is that children learn and live what they experience at home. If Jesus is not visibly present at home and in their parents, they may not/cannot learn from Catholic Schools or Parish Religious Education programs what they need to experience the life of God.  


What about the Sacraments?

Most children receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist in second grade.  This year First Holy Eucharist will take place on Sunday, April 18.



Confirmation at St. John the Baptist is a two-year program, usually starting in eighth grade with teens being Confirmed in their second year.  This year's second year Confirmation students will be Confirmed on Sunday, May 16 at St John the Baptist in Dayton with Father Yanta.  The Confirmation Mass will take place at 11:30 am
