Children are expected to be continuously involved in the faith formation program from Level 1 to 6.
Our teaching tool for catechism is Be my Disciples (www.bemydisciples.com)
Levels K, 1, 3 & 4 (Home-based Program)
“Learning as a Family”
This program allows the family to be the first educators of the faith to their child allowing the parish to offer faith enrichment workshops to parents and age-appropriate pastoral activities for the children.
This program is complemented with the Children’s Liturgy program offered during all our weekend masses from end of September to June.
Levels 2, 5 & 6 (Parish-based Program)
“Learning in a Faith Community”
(Includes Sacramental Preparation years)
This is a continuation of the “Learning as a Family Program ”. It is intended to help your child build community while completing his/her preparation for the reception of the Sacraments of Reconciliation, First Eucharist and Confirmation.
A child may request to receive the sacrament of Confirmation when he/she completes the Level 5 program. The immediate preparation will be done in level 6.
Resources for Confirmation:
High school students wishing to be confirmed must meet with the Parish Catechetical Leader to determine an appropriate faith journey – the length of the program is dependent upon several factors including whether or not the teen has been previously involved in a catechism program. The program is offered when there is a need.
