Welcome and Updates for Faith Formation, Youth Ministry, and Sacrament Preparation:
Thanks to all our families for a great start to this 2018-2019 academic year for Faith Formation, Youth Ministry, and Sacramental Preparation! Our Confirmation youth experienced a fun, faith-filled retreat on Sept. 9 at Camp Stella Maris. Our Family Faith Formation program kicked-off with orientation on Sept. 16 & 17. Missed this session? Contact our office or your family group leader for more info.
Read on to find out more about our programs, upcoming dates, and resources for the family!
Family Faith Formation Resource Pick-up
For those enrolled in our Family Faith Formation program, including Confirmation youth in Public School, we handed out the book resources at the orientation session on Sept. 16 & 17. For those who missed the orientation session, please make arrangments to pick up your materials from our office (in some cases, for those who missed the orientation, group leaders may have your materials - check with your leader first). If you are using the online resource, a separate log in email from My Catholic Faith Delivered should arrive to you next week sometime. For those who are newly registered, we are in the processing of ordering more books and those materials should be ready for pick up within a week or so. Our general office hours are below, but please do call before you come to ensure we are in the office. Thanks!
