Faith Formation

​Our children will need the love and strength that is provided by a strong faith life to grow up in today’s world. Church teaching makes it very clear that for faith to take root in the heart of a child it takes two important providers.​….The Family and The Parish!

Our desire Is a program that had the following components.

  1. We need to transmit effectively knowledge of, and love for, Christ and his Church.
  2. We need to stay connected as a parish family.

The last few years we have been using a hybrid model for Youth Faith Formation and the feedback that has been received is that the calendar has been confusing. With that in mind and in consultation with our amazing catechists (teachers), we will be returning to offering Faith Formation on a WEEKLY basis, continuing on Tuesdays from 6:00pm to 7:30pm.

We will continue to offer a Parent Session once a each month – we would love your input on topics that you would like to have discussed: hard topics, current social issues, things you have wondered, why exactly do we do this…..share with me items so that we can better help you grow in faith and understanding.

We are once again offering class for our Pre-K and Kindergarten aged youth. There will also be some room changes: to 4th and 5th Grade will now be combined and 6th and 7th Grade will now be combined.

For those with youth in Grade 2 and 8, you will notice that the Sacrament Schedule is included on the calendar. Confirmation throughout the Diocese of Greensburg will now be celebrated during the Easter Season, our Candidates will be Confirmed on May 30. First Communion will be celebrated on the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi) on June 2.

#1 – The Family

​Our teachings refers to the family as the Domestic Church.  In the family a child grows up observing adults who pray, who celebrate Mass and the Sacraments,  who live Christian lives.  Our Faith Formation office is here to help parents be the best example they can be.

#2 – The Parish

​It is the Parish’s desire and obligation to provide programs to build on the foundation that the parents are laying.  The Parish Faith Formation program strives to provide a deeper understanding and love for Jesus Christ, his Church, Scripture, and Sacraments.

Faith Formation for our children entering Grades Pre-K through 8th grades is undertaking a new look.  We are extremely excited to be rolling out this new way to live our faith!
