Faith Formation, First Communion, and Confirmation are starting soon!
(A quick guide for parents)
Our diocese requires two years of preparation for this sacrament. So, if your child is entering the second grade AND participated in Faith Formation or attend Sacred Heart school last year, you’ll want to register them for this sacrament. You can find the form on our website. Look under Parish Info and chose Parish Forms. Look for the First Communion Registration form under Sacraments.
Here too, our diocese requires two years of preparation for this sacrament. So, if your teen is entering the eighth grade AND participated in Faith Formation or attend Sacred Heart school last year, you’ll want to register them for this sacrament.

Introducing the Junior Legion of Mary!
As another option for our children and teens ages 8-17, we are pleased to begin a Junior Legion of Mary group that will meet on Monday evenings in the Parish Hall beginning September 26.
The Legion of Mary is a society of over 3 million Catholic Iay persons whose ministry, guided by the Holy Spirit, performs apostolic work to give Christ to the world through the love of Mary. The main purpose of the Junior Legion of Mary is to give glory to God through the sanctification of its members and preparation of its members to enter the Senior Legion. Members meet once a week for prayer, planning and discussion in a family setting. They also dedicate one hour of works each week in pairs and under the guidance of their Spiritual Director. Look for more information next week.
