Elementary Faith Formation

The Sacred Heart Children’s Faith Formation Team is privileged to support families as they pass on the legacy of faith to their children. We provide several programs including Children’s Liturgy of the Word, weekly faith formation classes, Sacramental Preparation, service opportunities, and family events.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word:

During the Children’s Liturgy of the Word, children have the opportunity to listen, pray, and celebrate at their level. After the homily, they rejoin their families and the parish congregation for the Liturgy of the Eucharist. Children’s Liturgy of the Word is celebrated at the Sunday 10:00am, 12:00pm and 2:00pm Masses.

Weekly Faith Formation Programs:

For children 1st through 5th grade, we have three sessions of weekly faith formation classes to choose from – Wednesday afternoons (4:30-5:30), Wednesday evenings (6:30-7:30), and Thursday evenings (6:30-7:30). The 2017-2018 sessions will begin in mid-Spetember.  

Sacramental Preparation:

Students who have completed one year (1st grade or above) of faith formation classes are eligible to begin Sacramental Preparation for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist. The preparation includes weekly classes, parent sessions, and two parent-child retreats.  First Reconciliation is celebrated in January and First Communion in May.
