Child Faith Formation

­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

A Contemporary Prayer to the Guardian Angel
Angel sent by God to guide me,
be my light and walk beside me;
be my guardian and protect me;
on the paths of life direct me.


Dear Parents/Guardians,

As we near the end of our 2020-2021 Child Faith Formation Program, I want to thank you for the hard work and commitment your family has shown to arrive at this point.  This has been a year of change and adjustment.  I appreciate your flexibility as we navigated through the change in circumstances.

Please take a moment to thank your child’s catechist.  They have surely been an example of dedication to our Lord and to our parish family. I truly appreciate their service to our families.

Faith formation is a lifelong process.  Children should be enrolled yearly in either Child Faith Formation (Grades K-5) or Youth Faith Formation (Grades 6-Confirmation).  We build upon our knowledge and relationship every year, similar to academic learning. 

As a reminder, in order to receive First Eucharist (Holy Communion), children must have completed at least one year of CFF (or attend Catholic school) prior to the year they will be receiving FHC, which usually occurs in the third grade.

I thank you for sharing your children with us.  My hope is that we can join together again next year.  Please check our website for registration information for next year in the next couple of months.  We will adjust to the directives from the State of New Mexico, the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, and our Pastor, Father Charles Ugochukwu.

Peace and God’s blessing,

Tes Charlton
