Faith Formation Program:
Our Faith Formation Program begins in September. It is important that every child receive a religious education. We have fine programs with dedicated teachers and staff. It is the obligation of parents to see that their children receive religious formation and the sacraments. Each year of Religious Education is important since every year there is a special emphasis on a particular aspect of faith and morality.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is received in second grade. This follows 2 years of preparation for the sacrament.
The Sacrament of First Eucharist is received in third grade. This follows preparation for the sacrament of Reconciliation and 1 year of preparation for the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist.
Confirmation Preparation begins on the 7th Grade level and continues for 2 consecutive years. After 2 years of Confirmation preparation the Sacrament of Confirmation is received the following fall.
