Children enrolled in the Trailblazer Elementary Program experience Christ in each other and learn first-hand what it means to be part of our Catholic Church community. St. Joseph’s small group, grade level sessions meet October through April during the school year. Small group leaders receive training, lessons plans, resources and numerous ideas and ways to make their small groups fun and exciting for the children (and the volunteers).

Students in grades 1- 6 meet either Monday evenings from 6:15pm-7:15pm or Wednesday evenings from 5:30pm to 6:30pm. Learning experiences include small and large group discussions, drama, games, music, art projects and prayer experiences throughout the year. We use a curriculum from the Our Sunday Visitor Publisher's Call to Faith series. Core content is presented in an age-appropriate way for each grade level for the following themes: Revelation, Trinity, Jesus Christ, The Church, Morality, Sacraments, and the Kingdom of God.
