Youth Faith Formation 2016-2017

The purpose of the Religious Education or the Faith Formation Program in our parish is to help participants deepen their Christian faith and identity through initiation rites, instruction and formation of conscience. We are committed to proclaiming the mysteries of faith, fostering community, encouraging worship and prayer and motivating service to others. The goal of the program for children and youth is to support and enhance the efforts of parents and guardians who want to share their faith with their children, this is done in the Roman Catholic tradition.

RE classes started the week of September 11. If you are new to the parish, you may download the registration form here and bring the completed form to the office to pay the tuition.

Please prayerfully consider sharing your faith with the children and youth of our parish. We always need catechists for our Faith Formation classes!

Sacramental Preparation

Confirmation: Adolescents who were baptized as an infant or toddler receive Confirmation in the 10th-11th grade. A recent baptismal certificate is required so the reception of the sacrament can be duly recorded at their church of baptism. This is a two-year program.

Communion: Students typically celebrate the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion in 2nd grade. Students must complete the pre-communion class or at least 1 year of Religious Education prior to beginning the First Communion program.

Special Sacraments: Religious education classes will be available to youth in 3rd grade or older that have not yet received the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion.

 

Vacation Bible School (VBS)

Thank you to all the volunteers, parents and children who made Cave Quest, a week-long fun and unique adventure! The children learned that they can conquer challenges with God's awesome power. This wonderful program offers our youngest parishioners a great experience of learning, prayer and fun with their peers. 

This fun-filled week is scheduled during the summer break each year. Parent and teen volunteers make this event successful and a lot of fun for the children of our parish. No teaching experience is required; however, there will be some preparation and work done prior to the summer event.
We look forward to next year's VBS program and if you have any questions or would like to know more about the volunteer opportunities, please contact Kimberly Lindsey at (512) 626-9069 or email kklindsey74@yahoo.com

 

Notes To Parents:

Congratulations and the peace of our Risen Lord be with the students who received the sacrament of Confirmation in September 2016.  God’s blessings on each of them as they continue their sacramental journey in the Catholic Church. 

Parents and confirmed students are asked to prayerfully consider sharing your faith with our parish. Please encourage your young adult to visit the Stewardship page to learn about the many volunteer opportunities that are available. A complete listing of the parish ministries is available and a ministry sign-up form can be completed and turned in at the office. We look forward to serving with you!

A great on-line resource for parents can be found at Faith and Safety - Technology Safety Through the Eyes of Faith. Jointly developed by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America (GOA), this site is an attempt to give you some simple, straightforward advice and tools on how to navigate this digital world with your family. 

We strongly encourage you to visit Faith and Safety because Internet safety isn't about the right software or service. Rather, real safety in the digital world is all about active, involved, loving parenting.  It's a team effort that builds a strong Christian family!
