Child Faith Formation


REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED FOR THE FALL/WINTER FAITH FORMATION CLASSES

Please pray for the Children, Youth, and Adults as we begin our New Session:

O God, we long to know you and to love you, but the busyness of life often gets in the way.
Help us to recognize the ordinary, daily ways that our families can learn about You and grow closer to You. We know that You are with us, leading us and guiding us on our way.
Amen.

Our Child Faith Formation Classes (Kindergarten through Grade 5) meet Wednesday Evenings September 8, 2021, through April 27, 2022, from 5:30PM - 7:00PM.

Parents,

We are off to a great start!  Thank you for sharing your children with us to grow in love and relationship with our Lord.  Families are the first catechists of their children.  You are the most influential instrument for your children’s spiritual growth.  Communicate your faith through words and actions by attending and participating in Sunday Mass, through prayer, and by serving those who are in need.

It is through ordinary living that we foster the opportunity to pray, serve, forgive, and to believe.

Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) 1666:

The family home is rightly called “the domestic church”, a community of grace, prayer, a school of human virtues, and of Christian charity.

As the session progresses, I may need a few substitute catechists or classroom aides.  This would most likely be a last-minute situation if a teacher or aide is ill or other issues may arise.

If you are interested in assisting our catechists, please let me know if you are available. 

Peace and Grace to you,
Tes Charlton

­The apostles were chosen by Jesus to be his friends and to witness to others. God chooses each Christian to do the same in today’s world.

 

"For prayer is nothing else than being on terms of friendship with God." ~ St. Theresa of Avila

   
 

 

Our Wednesday evening session has begun.  Please keep the children and youth of our parish in your daily prayers as they grow in love and knowledge of our Lord.

Children should be attending faith formation classes every year, similar to academic learning.  As they mature, their comprehension, familiarity, and devotion with our Catholic faith will flourish.

As a reminder, in order to receive the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist (First Holy Communion), children must have completed at least one year of faith formation prior to receiving these sacraments, which usually occurs in the third grade.
