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

The love from God is unconditional, we receive this love for doing nothing! God wants us, in turn, to share that love with everyone we meet.

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 - Lesson 5, “Who is Jesus?” is our plan for this week. We will explore the Person and Mission of Christ.

Year 2 - We will start Lesson 17 and learning about “Who’s calling?”

First sacraments of reconciliation and holy communion

The students should now be working on Chapters 1 and 2 in the God’s Gift book in preparation for their 1st Penance. Worksheet N can be dropped of in the box by the bulletin board.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word

Children’s Liturgy of the Word is a program for pre-school aged and young children(3 years to 1st grade) during the Mass. The children are dismissed to learn about the readings and then return to Mass for the Liturgy of the Eucharist.

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
