Faith Formation: Grades 1-10
We believe the parents are the primary religious educators of their children. In the St. Paul Faith Formation Program we recognize a responsibility to help the parents in their duty to provide religious education for their children.
We need YOU! Each and every one of us is called to pass on the faith to our youth. Please prayerfully consider helping in our Faith Formation program. Don’t feel “called” to be a catechist? No problem! We can use your talents during the class sessions. Consider volunteering to help with clerical tasks, large group set up and take down (when needed). Qualifications: A desire to grow closer in your relationship with Jesus by reaching out to our amazing children and young adults!
Children of receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation and the Sacrament of the Eucharist for the first time in the second grade. The Sacrament of the First Reconciliation is celebrated in January; the First Eucharist is celebrated after Easter. The responsibility to continue receiving these sacraments by the child/children belongs to the parents. In the Faith Formation Program, the child must have completed first grade Faith Formation.
Confirmation is the third sacrament of the initiation into the church. Our program, consisting of grades 8-10 is a three-year commitment. Course work, related preparation and spiritual guidance assist the students in becoming adult members of the parish community.
