 Faith Formation

Faith Formation is a general title given to programs that help Catholics deepen their understanding of the Catholic faith and tradition throughout their lifetime, from childhood through adulthood.

Our parish offers a variety of faith formation programs. Even though a majority of these formal programs are designed for children, our parish also offers many opportunities for adult faith formation throughout the course of the year.

You are welcome to explore the various programs that our parish offers, or check our parish bulletin for current faith formation opportunities.

 Faith Formation Classes

‚ÄčIn our parish, faith formation classes are offered for children in kindergarten through twelfth grade. More information about the 2017-18 Faith Formation School Year will be announced at a later date. Registration packets will be mailed to registered families with children in these grade levels. If you did not receive a registration packet, please contact the parish office.

Classes are held on Sunday mornings from 9:00 a.m., to 10:30 a.m. in the lower level of the church.

Important Reminders to Parents

  • If your child is in the first grade, remember that two years of Faith Formation is a requirement to receive the sacraments of First Confession and First Eucharist, which are received during the second grade. You must make sure that your child is registered and regularly attends Faith Formation classes this school year in order for them to be properly prepared to receive their sacraments next school year.
  • If your child is in second grade, you must make sure that your child is registered and regularly attending faith formation‚Äč classes in order for them to be properly prepared to receive the sacrament of Reconciliation and First Eucharist. In addition to your responsibility of making sure that your child regularly attends these classes, all parents of children in second grade are required to attend two workshops:
    • First Reconciliation Parent Workshop
    • First Eucharist Parent Workshop
  • If your child is in third through seventh grades, your child must continue to regularly attend and participate in Faith Formation. Although they have received their First Eucharist, they must continue to receive regular instruction in our Catholic Faith in order to be properly prepared to receive the sacrament of Confirmation in the eighth grade.
  • If your child is in eighth grade, you must make sure that he or she is registered and regularly attends Faith Formation classes this school year in order to be properly prepared to receive the sacrament of Confirmation.
  • If your child is in ninth through twelfth grade, they are still encouraged to attend faith formation classes, though they have received all the sacraments of initiation. Young adults can benefit from the guidance of faith during the difficult teenage years.
