Faith Formation Program
The Faith Formation program is offered to all children in Kindergarten through 10th grade. The program runs from Mid-September to the First Sunday in May each year.
Grades K-1, 3-7 use the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies. Each year we build on their knowledge from the previous year. Attendance at class each week is important as much sharing and interacting takes place within the classroom. It is required that students attend each grade level of religious education as they grow in their faith and prepare for their sacraments.
We take pride in working with our children who are preparing for the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist in Grade 2. We place an emphasis on the family coming together to prepare as well as celebrating these wonderful moments in their children’s lives. In the 2021-2022 year First Eucharist will be moving to the 3rd grade. More information to come this summer.
In grade 8 as they begin the pre-confirmation preparation, they follow Part 1 of the Chosen Program. In Grade 9, year one Confirmation preparation we use Altarations with the Chosen Program. In Grade 10, Confirmation year 2; the Chosen program is completed along with additional resources used for final preparation for the sacrament of Confirmation. It is through this process that students become engaged and active in their faith journey!
Students are asked to complete a total of 20 service hours – 10 hours in grades 8 and 10 more in grade 9; service both in the parish and local community are encouraged.
Students are given the opportunity to make their own faith commitment through the Sacrament of Confirmation – the reception usually takes place in the Spring of 10th grade.
