The new Faith FOrmation Year has Begun!

Faith Formation is intended to begin by 1st Grade and run continually until Confirmation. We offer a kindergarten program to get kids excited about praying and learning about Jesus. Our 1st to 5th Grade students learn with the Blest are We series and our 6th Grade students add the Encounter series to learn about scripture. After Confirmation we are still learning about our Faith, just not always in a formal class setting.

Kindergarten to 6th grade

Through baptism we are welcomed into the church; we become part of the body of Christ. Just a reminder that there are no classes on Veteran’s Day weekend or the weekfollowing; please check your schedules for information.

Confirmation year 1 and 2

Sacred Heart offers a two year Confirmation program beginning in the 7th grade. Over the two years the candidate and their family journey together toward a richer knowledge and understanding of the Catholic faith.

Year 1: Lots of service opportunities are going to be posted soon, keep an eye on the board.
Year 2: The summer students return on Tuesday, November 13th at 7 pm. All sponsor names are now due, certificates are required for those that are not parishioners of Sacred Heart.

Prayer for the Holy Family OF God

O God, who was pleased to give us
the shining example of the Holy Family,
graciously grant that we may imitate them
in practicing the virtues of family life.
Transform our doubt to faith; Strengthen our hope;
Help us to live in charity.
Until we are all one in your kingdom
through Jesus Christ, your Son,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
One God, for ever and ever.

AMEN
