FAITH FORMATION FOR YOUTH AND CHILDREN 2017-2018
Faith Formation Program Registration Available Now!
Is your child or youth “On the road” with Jesus? It’s all about discipleship! From infancy to our final days in this lifetime, we are all in the process of “Faith Formation” – learning about and growing in our Faith and discipleship and deepening our encounter with Christ.
Ongoing Faith Formation
Faith Formation is an ongoing process. We offer ongoing classes for children and youth in Grade 1 through High School and their families to grow closer to God and be formed in our faith through prayer and worship, leading a moral life, participating in projects to help the poor, learning about what we believe as Catholics, becoming immersed in the life of the parish community, and celebrating sacraments.
Our Faith Formation Program includes preparing for and celebrating sacraments. Santa Teresa Church is a “Restored Sequence of the Sacraments” parish. This means that Confirmation and First Eucharist are prepared for and celebrated at the same time. For First Eucharist, Confirmation, and First Reconciliation (Grade 2 and older) your child must participate in the Faith Formation program a minimum of two consecutive years, including the year that the sacraments are celebrated.
When do classes meet and who attends?
- Monthly Sunday classes: 1:15p-3:15p – All students attend the monthly Sunday classes
- Monthly Tuesday classes: 6:30p-8:30p – Those preparing to receive sacraments in the spring of 2018 attend these classes in addition to the Sunday classes.
Faith Formation sessions begin on Sunday, August 27, 2017, 1:15-3:15 pm and Tuesday, August 29, 6:30p-8:30p. The registration packet is for all families whether you are New to the program, beginning the Second Year of the program, or Continuing after Sacraments (For students continuing after sacraments there is a special reduced fee and parents are not required to attend). Packets are in the vestibule of the church on the Parish Faith Formation table and in the Parish Office. Please return your registration forms to the Parish Office as soon as possible, no later than Monday, August 14 after which late fees apply. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Nancy Royal, or Sherri Butler in the Parish Office at 408-629-7777 or by email: Nancy@SantaTeresaChurch.com or Sherri@SantaTeresaChurch.com.
We look forward to a wonderful year growing together in Christ, Jesus!
