We are so excited to open registrations for the 2023 - 2024 Faith Formation year! Our goal in faith formation and in our sacramental preparation programs is to provide a place and a way for your child to encounter Jesus Christ, to get to know Him, to know His Church, and to know one another.
Children in or beginning 2nd grade and up are invited to begin preparation for 1st Reconciliation and 1st Holy Communion. Families will use videos and an activity book to prepare the children at home, and we will meet as a group at Holy Family several times over the preparation period. You can view the preparation materials here.
Teens in or beginning 10th grade and up are invited to begin preparation for Confirmation. Our first Confirmation Preparation session will be scheduled for late 2023 or early 2024. Parents are asked to attend the first meeting as well. Stay tuned for more information!
Archbishop Lori asks that prior to beginning sacramental preparation (either for 1st Reconciliation and Holy Communion or for Confirmation), children should have completed at least one year of a faith formation program. The child should also be enrolled in the faith formation program during the sacramental preparation year.
Please note that as Catholic School students receive religious education at school, they do not need to complete at least one year of Faith Formation before preparing for a sacrament. Their actual preparation for the sacrament itself does however take place in the parish community!
Sacraments can be received even if past the "usual" period, and we will work with you and your family to prepare you or your child for Baptism, 1st Reconciliation and Eucharist, or Confirmation!
Please contact the Pastorate Office with any questions!
Grades K - 5
Parents of children in grades K-5, please note that we're going to be having lunch in the classroom! Please pack your child something to eat for lunch during our regular sessions!
Please also keep in mind that our K-5 Faith Formation program uses the KidCheck system to check the kids in and out. If you aren't already signed up, you can go here to get started.
Grades 6 - 12
As in years past, we will begin our middle and high school Faith Formation sessions with a communal meal. This is a great way to foster fellowship among our young people! Parents, we need your help to make this possible! Stay tuned for more information to come about helping out with Faith Formation dinners.
