St. Gabriel Christian Formation

Children's Ministry


We are so glad you are here, desiring to lead your child to Christ.

Our mission is to proclaim Christ and make disciples through the Sacramental Life of the Church.  We do this in an intentional way through our formation process which aligns with this mission. Your family and your child are constantly invited to explore, develop and deepen your relationship with Christ and the Church.  

Each year a child returns to his or her religious education, another critical stepping stone of his or her journey towards Christ is completed! Spiritual growth and devotion to the faith start with an understanding of Catholicism and the beautiful call to be disciples. The volunteer teachers leading each classroom are individuals dedicated to their faith and to the growth of their students’ spiritual lives.

For Grades 2 through 5, St. Gabriel’s offers a religious education program in a traditional classroom setting. It is through this program that children receive the sacraments of Reconciliation and First Communion, which the Archdiocese of Milwaukee celebrates in 2nd Grade. It is important to note that if you are interested in your child receiving the sacraments, they must be registered for the year prior, 1st Grade, to receive proper formation for these special sacraments.
