Faith Formation is meant to supplement the religious formation a child receives at home; it is not meant to be the "Main Course".

Please arrive and pick up promptly. Late arrivals are very disruptive to the class as a whole. NO ONE is available to babysit a child after classes. Please pick up promptly! Families are encouraged to attend the 9:30 AM Mass together. 

Sacramental preparation for First Holy Communion is a two year program, Grades 1 & 2. All children both public and Catholic schools are required to attend.

Confirmation is conferred in Grade 9 and is also a two year program (Grades 8 & 9) for both public and Catholic school students. In addition to faith formation classes, candidates in both grades are expected to complete community service and a mandatory retreat is required in the second year of preparation.

Parents are reminded to report their child's absence to the faith formation office at 508-824-6791 or e-mail at
