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

This week is chapter 3, focus is on How we Live as Catholics. On Sundays our classes are scheduled aroundMass times; enjoy the free time while the students are inclass and then take your children to Mass as a family.

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 2-”What makes me happy?” Discovering God as the Source- If you would like to log on to watch the videos let us know and we can provide a code.

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
