Children's Catechism

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.

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.

Learning in a Faith Community Guidelines

 

Sacraments

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:

First Communion

A child may receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist (First Communion) when he/she is completing year two of a catechism program. The second year of the catechism program will be held at the parish.

Teen Program

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.
