TRACY SHAUGHNESSY - Faith Formation Director


GINA KULAK - Assistant to Faith Formation Director



Faith Formation, previously referred to as Religious Education, is intended to begin by 1st grade and continued through Confirmation. After Confirmation we continue learning about our faith as we live and share it. Our goal is to assist families, where the majority of the faith is learned, along their path. Let us know how we can help!

Kindergarten to 6th grade: It is never to late to begin Faith Formation classes! If you know of someone that is past the traditional age have them contact our office and we can help.

Confirmation Year 1 and 2: Sacred Heart offers a two year Confirmation program beginning in the 7th grade. We use the Chosen program from Ascension Press which incorporates video, book and discussion. Year 1: By the end of next year, students need to have 2 stations of the cross and 20 hours of service(10 must be in church) Don’t wait, get started now! Year 2: Congratulations to our recently Confirmed!

First Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion: The family banners to mark the pews are due soon; drop them off in the purple bin in the Gathering Space.

Home School: All of the home school material for the 2018-2019 year should be complete by May 19th. This year must be complete before registering for the next year.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word: We could use some adult aged help with the Children’s Liturgy of the Word, a program for pre-school aged and young children(3 years through 1st grade) during the 11:00 A.M. Mass. Contact the office if you are interested in getting involved. (315)699-7678

Totus Tuus Returns! This summer we will again be offering the Totus Tuus camp for those entering 1-6 grades. The camp is July 8-12 from 9 A.M. to 3 P.M. Registration will begin soon!

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.
