YOUTH FAITH FORMATION

Grades 1-5

In order to best support the personal development and relationship with Jesus, a classroom style setting is offered.  Curriculum that is used will be Alive in Christ and Ruah Woods Press Theology of the Body. As faith formation is more than just religious instruction, the goal is growth in faith and leading all to live out the faith in their community.  Through hands-on projects and exploration of the Catholic faith, formation of the whole child is encouraged. 

  • All grades meet on Sunday mornings from 11-12 at St. Joseph’s Regional School
     

  • Classrooms will be designated on the map located in the handbook and signs will be on each door of the classroom indicating Faith Formation Grade
     

  • 2nd Grade will complete the Sacrament of First Reconciliation (Date will be announced in the spring)
     

  • 3rd Grade will complete the Sacraments of First Communion and Confirmation (Date will be announced in the spring)

Grades 6-8

The middle grades program is an integrated approach to faith formation which includes small and large group exercises.  The curriculum balances a focus on developing the gifts received from Confirmation as well as the youth’s personal faith journey.  Service opportunities like visiting the nursing homes and homeless shelter allow the youth to live and share their faith in our community.  

  • Meet on Sunday mornings from 11-12 in the St. Joseph’s Regional School gymnasium
     

  • Service opportunities will be a part of the curriculum and families will be notified on the time or place changes via email and handouts in class
