Faith Formation

Prerequisites for this program are:

  • A registered member of St. Mary’s Parish

  • Proof of Baptism. If not baptized here at St. Mary’s Parish, a copy of the Baptism Certificate is required.

  • The child must have successfully completed a year of Faith Formation classes prior to registering for the sacraments.

  • Students need to attend scheduled Faith Formation classes during the year. Those attending St. Mary’s Academy or another Catholic school receive their Faith Formation in school so they do not need to register for our classes, but do need to register for the sacramental program (First Eucharist & Reconciliation Workshops, Confirmation Years 1 & 2). 

 

The Faith Formation program at St. Mary of the Assumption is a fun, family oriented faith formation program. Our program is interactive and educational, teaching the basics of Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, while incorporating current events, all while having fun while learning. We instill in the children a love of our Lord and a love for our Holy Catholic Church, both at a parish level and at a universal level. We stress kindness, compassion and service to others, living in the image of God, as we are called to do. We have classes from First Grade to Confirmation.

For more information or to join our wonderful program,

please contact Catherine Mackey, Director of Faith Formation, at 635-5762 ext. 110.

REGISTER FOR THE 2020/2021 

FAITH FORMATION YEAR!

Please register by July 31 to get the Early Bird Special!

 

CHANGES IN OUR FAITH FORMATION PROGRAM FOR THIS YEAR DUE TO THE PANDEMIC:

All grades will be a hybrid program for this year!

Families will receive the paper copies of the Gospel Weekly Readers and/or the link for the online version of them. You can have either or both! The weekly teaching of Faith Formation will be homeschooled this year.

BUT

We will also have four family Faith Formation events throughout the year to keep the kids connected to their church and to engage in some whole group teaching! These events will be fun and faith filled, but will be outside with social distancing, to keep kids and families safe! 

Our first event will be a drive in family movie night coming in October! Be on the look out for more details!
It's going to be AMAZING!!

Grades 9 and 10 will also have some short online learning lessons to complete throughout the year to be sure they are prepared for the Sacrament of Confirmation at the end of 10th grade.

Grade 2 students will complete their weekly lessons at home, but will have a total of five online sacrament workshops to prepare for the sacraments, as well as a fun 5 minute video to watch each week (workshops will begin in late November).

Any necessary parent meetings will be done by Zoom.

Is your child receiving the sacrament of First Reconciliation and First Communion in this upcoming Faith Formation year?

If so, please be sure to register them for BOTH the weekly Faith Formation second grade class AND for the sacrament prep class. The total cost will be $60.
