Children’s Faith Formation Programs
Our Children’s Faith Formation program is offered on Sunday from 11:15am – 12:40pm. Classes are taught in English at all levels; however, classes in Spanish for Pre-k, Kinder, and 1st grade are available at the parents’ request. Student textbooks will be bilingual to encourage parents to participate in the faith formation of their children.
Eligible third graders receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation and First Eucharist. Preparations for these sacraments are through a required two-year program for second and third graders.
A Sacramental class, or Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults adapted for Children (RCIC), is offered for third graders and up who have not received their sacraments of initiation (Baptism, First Reconciliation and First Eucharist).
Parents or other adults may volunteer to help in many different areas of the Religious Education program. Contact our Faith Formation Office at 433-2777 ext 118 to enroll your child/children in our programs or to volunteer your services.
All youth participating in CYO must be registered and attending Faith Formation Classes.
Sacrament of Reconciliation
Sacrament of Holy Eucharist
The Sacraments of Reconciliation (First Confession/Penance and Holy Eucharist (First Holy Communion) are offered in the third grade; however, it is required that students attend first and second grades. This will provide the child a better knowledge of the basic elements of Catholicism and an understanding of our Lord's love and be able to accept His love in a positive way.
Children who are beyond 3rd grade and wish to receive the Sacrament will attend RCIC l instructions along with their regular classes.
