Faith Formation

Our faith formation program is Christ-centered and family-oriented. Our goal is to form lifelong disciples of Christ while supporting parents as the first and primary catechists of their children.

Dedicated to inspiring our children and young adults in the Catholic faith and tradition, the St. Veronica Faith Formation Program has been instructing our youth since the early years of the Parish. Included in the religious education of our children are the two-year sacramental preparation programs for First Holy Communion and Confirmation.

Classes are held on Wednesday afternoons (Grades 1-6), Wednesday evenings (Grade 7 & Confirmation Year I/no earlier than Grade 8) and Saturday mornings (Grades 1-6). Confirmation at St. Veronica is conferred no earlier than the 9th grade.

Our parish is also blessed to host a Special Needs Faith Formation program for the youth of the Peninsula, sponsored by the Archdiocese of San Francisco. In addition to the classes taught by our dedicated volunteer catechists, the Faith Formation Program strives to create a family atmosphere and inclusiveness with the rest of the Parish community by encouraging participation in Parish ministries and activities.

If you have any questions, please contact Karen Guglielmoni, Faith Formation Coordinator, at (650) 588-1455 with any questions.

“Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it.”

Children and Youth

For Children and Youth, we have an active program for the development and deepening of our children’s faith, including preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation.

Adult Faith Formation

For Adults who were baptized Catholic and received First Eucharist, we offer a six-week course in both the spring and fall. We have several programs through which you can grow in your faith and knowledge of the teachings of the Church


Are you or is someone you know interested in joining the Catholic Church?

Have you been away, and want to come back to the Church and not sure how?

Do you have a non-Catholic family member or friend who would like to know more about the Catholic Faith?
