Children’s Faith Formation

So often people say that we should look to the elderly, learn from their wisdom, their many years. I disagree, I say we should look to the young: untarnished, without stereotypes implanted in their minds, no poison, no hatred in their hearts. When we learn to see life through the eyes of a child, that is when we become truly wise.”
—Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta

At Saint Cecilia we partner with parents to help nurture and support the spiritual and religious potential of children. We provide an atmosphere where children are exposed to Sacred Scripture, the celebration of the sacraments, prayer, and works of justice and mercy–all done within the context of the Catholic tradition and the teachings of Jesus Christ. Stop by and introduce yourself. We would be happy to welcome you and your children to Saint Cecilia.

Our Faith Formation Program for children begins in kindergarten 2 and ends in tenth grade with the celebration of the sacrament of confirmation. The sacraments of reconciliation and First Holy Communion take place in second grade.

November 9 – Grade 3
December 14 – Grade 4
January 11 – Grade 5
February 8 – Grade 6
March 14 – Grade 7

(If you have more than one child in grades two through eight, please indicate which dinner you prefer to participate in (you are welcome to help with more than one dinner if you have more than one child, but it is not expected). All children in grade two will attend the March 14 dinner. Children in second grade are too young to be in the kitchen, so they will attend a presentation on homelessness, watch a video on the mission of Pine Street Inn, and then decorate cookies to serve the women for dessert. There will be a meeting on a Sunday in October during class time to talk about these dinners.)

Are you willing to be a parent leader/organizer for one of these dinners?
YesNo
