About Our Program

Saint Paul of the Cross Parish is partnering with South Hills Catholic Academy to provide an engaging Faith Formation program for our students.

Parish volunteers work in collaboration with SHCA teachers to serve students in grades K-8.

We're adopting the Spirit of Truth curriculum by Sophia Institute, a program designed by Catholic master teachers, to deliver students a meaningful encounter with our faith.

We offer two catechetical options, allowing you to choose the method that works best for you and your family. 
  • In person classes: Mondays, 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm at South Hills Catholic Academy (Saint Winifred Church)
  • Home-Based program: Parents who elect to utilize this program are provided the resources and materials to teach the curriculum at home. 
Please check back during the summertime for the 2022-2023 Faith Formation Registration link. It will be advertised in the parish bulletin as well.
