The first preparation class for First Reconciliation is this Sunday, September 18 at 10:45am in the FJMP Parish Life Center. The children and at least one parent need to attend this special orientation session. These classes are a requirement for First Communion. First Communion is scheduled for May 6 2023. We have sent out emails to all registered families with the special First Sacrament schedule attached. Please check your emails.

CCF and Sacramental Class Schedule:

IMPORTANT NOTE: We will be using a different CCF dismissal procedure this Sunday. In an effort to get each child across the driveway to their parent safely, we are going to line all of the children up inside the main hallway where they will wait to be called to go out to their parent or family car. Volunteers will come to the side of the building where you normally pick your children up and ask you for your family name and how many children you are picking up. Then the volunteer will go inside and bring your children out to you. We appreciate your help and patience with this new procedure. We hope that it will go smoothly and keep children from running across the parking lot. Thank you.

Catholics on the Move ….
What is this all about?       

COTM is an adult faith formation experience at Holy Faith Catholic Church designed for adults. The core belief of our Catholic faith is that Jesus is alive today and so is his Church, and our mission is to prepare ourselves in every possible way to be witnesses of this living Jesus. Our mission is to be properly equipped spiritually, in knowledge, and in wisdom, but especially with mercy and compassion to spread the joy of the Good News wherever we are and in whatever we do.
