Children Faith Formation
All Resurrection’s Faith Formation Programs are intended to lead the children to prayer and intimacy with Jesus, as well as teach our Catholic traditions and nurture the desire to live out beliefs in acts of service, social justice, and love of neighbor.
The Elementary Faith Formation Program seeks to be a balanced combination of formation in faith and spiritual life through experiences of prayer, service, and friendship; and schooling in the Catholic teachings through Lectionary- (Sunday Scripture) based instruction. Faith Formation Sessions for children grades K-6 generally are scheduled weekly from mid-September through April.
At the appropriate age level, children prepare for the first reception of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist. Parents, with training and assistance, are the chief instructors and mentors in this preparation. Celebrations of First Communion take place at regularly scheduled weekend liturgies in May.
