Faith First

August 2018 

Our Faith First classes take place on Sunday mornings from 9:15-11:30 am.  Classes consist of one hour of theory (1 trained Catechist per group of 4-10 children) followed by one hour of mass. Our sessions run from mid September to the end of April or early May. We have classes for students in grades 1 through 6. 

The children receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation in Level 2, First Communion in Level 3 and Confirmation in level 6.  There is at least a 2-year preparation for First Communion.  Children must attend and complete level 2 in order to progress to level 3 to receive their First Communion.  If you register your child for level 2 in September 2018 they will only receive their First Communion in the spring of 2020 when they are in level 3.  Children must then continue to levels 4, 5, and then 6 in order to receive their Confirmation in level 6.  A child must be at least 6 years old to enter level 1. 

Our next session will start in mid September 2018 and will end around late April early May 2019 (depending on when the sacraments will be held).  Regular attendance is required and parents are expected to attend the 10:30 am mass with their children. We will be taking registrations for classes starting now until the end of August early September 2018.  A copy of the registration form is attached herein.  The fees are as follows: 1 child 85$, 2 children 110$, 3 children or more 150$.  You can drop off the filled out form along with your payment at the parish office Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 am-2 pm, and Wednesdays from 10 am -4 pm.  

Look forward to welcoming you to our parish.
