If a student is starting with us for faith formation and have not been to or ever attended a Faith Formation program, they will participate in supplemental classes. They will be required to attend classes on Tuesday evenings 6:15-7:30 pm along with the regular Sunday faith formation classes. When attending these classes, they will get the information needed to continue with the Sunday classes.
The handbook is a guide to the policies and procedures of the Children’s Faith Formation program. You will need to sign upon reading to agree to the policies.
First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion are celebrated in the spring for students in the second grade. This is a year long instruction, along with going to Mass and attending the required retreats by the student and the parent.
