About Faith Formation

The faith of a child is a precious, pure, and beautiful thing that requires careful and continuous cultivation to grow to its full potential. In order to assist in this wondrous process Holy Spirit offers Faith Formation Classes every Sunday from 10:15-11:15  for Pre-K to High School aged children.

Registration

In order to register parents or guardians will need to submit a completed registration form, a baptismal certificate if baptized or birth certificate if not, and copies of the baptismal certificate and birth certificate to the church before the first class day of the year.

RCIA

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is a program for those who want to enter the church who are over the age of seven. These specialized course cover the sacraments of baptism, first communion, and confirmation. In order to register for this course please contact our office.

Sacraments

Our Faith Formation Classes include the specialized two consecutive year courses for first communion and reconciliation for 1st and 2nd grade and confirmation for 9th and 10th grade.

Safe Environment

Teachers and assistants of Faith Formation Classes must attend and pass Safe Environment training to ensure the safety of the children in our care. If you would like to attend a training, please contact our office.
