Sign-up, Payment and Deadlines – for 2018-19
Online registration is closed for the 2018-19 Christian Formation year. Anyone wishing to enroll will need to come to the parish office during business hours or call the Christian Formation department. (See “Additional Information” below.)
Children will not be denied access to Christian Formation programs due to financial need. If you have financial concerns, contact the Christian Formation Department. (See “Additional Information” below.)
Parent Meetings Required
Parent meetings were held in fall 2018 for all Christian Formation class levels (K3-Grade 11).
Parental Involvement – Please share your time and faith
With a combined program of over 600 students, many hands are needed to assure a high quality program. Archdiocesan standards are established for child/adult ratios in our programs. We encourage you to share your time and faith with the children and youth of our parish. Team teaching with a friend or family member is a refreshing opportunity to expand your knowledge of the faith. We provide a variety of personalized training opportunities for parents or other adults to assist as catechists and classroom aides.
Catechists will receive an incentive of either a stipend or tuition waiver/reduction equal to one child’s tuition as a “thank you” for your help.
Documentation of the child’s baptism is required during preparation for the sacraments. This information will be collected in the 1st and 11th grades.
First Reconciliation and First Eucharist
First Reconciliation and First Eucharist are normally celebrated in Grade 2. Preparation begins in Grade 1 or sooner and continues through Grade 2. This formation and completion of Family Folders, in addition to attending weekly Sunday Mass, provides the foundation for these sacraments.
Confirmation is normally celebrated in Grade 11. Preparation begins in Grade 9, continues through Grade 11 and includes service and retreat components.
