FAITH FORMATION FOR CHILDREN & TEENS

2019-2020

The Church recognizes that parents are the first and foremost teachers of the faith for their children. Catechists (teachers) are resources who work in partnership with parents in providing the information that helps parents provide the formation. Faith formation is a life-long process. It doesn’t end after the celebration of a sacrament or when a teen outgrows youth group. Faith formation is a personal journey that, often, is best shared with those around us, and what better way for parents to spend time with their children than in growing together in faith?

 Faith Formation Options:

  1. Two-Week Summer Program for grades K-6 Two-week Summer Program, followed by 4-6 Family Enrichment sessions on Saturday evenings scheduled throughout the school year.

  1. SUNDAY FAITH FORMATION Program for grades K-6:   1 1/2 hour sessions are held two Sundays a month from September to April.
    Jr. High grades 7-8 Focuses on the topics required in preparing to celebrate the sacrament of Confirmation.

Youth Group Programs:

  • Jr. High grades 7-8 includes Proximate Preparation Prior to Celebrating Confirmation

This two-year program provides overall faith formation including components of service and socializing. It also focuses on the topics required in preparing to celebrate the sacrament of Confirmation. This program is offered Wednesday evenings from 7-8:30PM at Nellis Hall at Holy Ghost Worship Site.

Sr. High grades 9-12

Provides general, overall faith formation including components of service and socializing. This is a great venue to keep post-confirmation teens connected with their faith and to grow spiritually while serving the community. It includes parish and diocesan retreat opportunities. Meetings are Sunday mornings from 10-11:30AM at Nellis Hall at Holy Ghost Worship Site.

An important piece of being a part of the Summer Program is participating in the Family Enrichment Sessions. You must attend two sessions in the fall/winter and two sessions in the winter/ spring. This year we will do things a little differently. We will celebrate Mass at 5:00PM at St. Jude with our family enrichment session to follow right after at St Jude’s Parish Life Center where summer program is held.

CHILDREN'S LITURGY OF THE WORD

Children's Liturgy of the Word has children ages 4 to 10 leave the Sunday assembly during the Liturgy of the Word and gather elsewhere to celebrate a separate Liturgy of the Word that is more appropriate to their level of understanding.

After the opening prayer, but before the first reading is proclaimed, the presiding priest will formally send the children and their ministers to the place where they will celebrate their own liturgy of the word. 

Children's Liturgy of the Word is celebrated at our Holy Ghost worship site at 9AM Mass
