Children's Faith Formation
REGISTER FOR 2022-2023
Classes begin September 11, 2022.
The Faith Formation program at Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church generally serves students in grades 1-8 who attend public schools or non-Catholic private schools. The program strives to offer children and their parents an opportunity to learn about and experience the love of God through scripture, tradition, liturgy, teaching, and the life of the Church. The curriculum will be delivered using stories, arts and crafts, music, and videos based on the weekly Gospel reading.
The goals include:
Growing in our relationship with Jesus.
Learning to live as God’s disciples at home, work, in the community, and in the world.
Developing an understanding of the Bible and our Catholic faith traditions.
Deepening our spiritual life and practices.
Engaging in service and mission to our community and greater world.
Participating in the life and ministries of our faith community.
The program includes preparation for the Sacraments of Reconciliation/First Holy Communion (2nd grade) and Confirmation (8th grade). Students must be enrolled for one entire year, with adequate participation before entering actual sacramental preparation.
Registration fees help to recover the cost of textbooks and classroom materials. Fees per family:
$60.00 - first student
$80.00 - second student in Family
$100.00 - third or more students in Family
If you are unable to pay the tuition or need a payment plan, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements. No child is ever turned away due to the inability to pay registration fees. There is an additional $40.00 sacramental preparation fee for each student in the First Eucharist or $50.00 for the Confirmation preparation program.
Families interested in Faith Formation are encouraged to complete the on-line registration and payment process or to download the documents and return completed to the Parish Office.
