Faith Formation

Kids in Church

Class Days and Times

Registration for Faith Formation is taking place for 2022-2023.

 

1) Registration Form: After downloading, please carefully fill out the enclosed registration form. Make sure you select your Sunday AM (9:45 – 11:15 a.m.) or Monday PM (6:15 – 7:30) session preference. Please include an email so that we can update you on any schedule changes or events here at the church. Remember, the sessions are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you must have a certain session due to other scheduling issues, be sure to return your forms right away!


2) Fees/Schedule/Calendar: Refer to registration form for specific fee and schedule details. It is preferred, but not required, that your registration is returned with your fee payment. If you need to make other arrangements, please send in a note with your registration. No child will be denied access to Faith Formation classes for financial reasons.

3) Volunteer Application: Volunteers are needed! We can use help on Sunday mornings and Monday evenings with hall-monitoring, parking lot supervision, classroom and office aides. Please complete the Parent Volunteer Forms and return ASAP. IF YOU HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT VOLUNTEERING, NOW IS THE TIME!


4) Cell Phone Number Required: Our automated texting cell phone system allows me to contact families using one automated text message. We will use this system to notify you of class cancellations or schedule changes.


5) Baptismal Information: If your child was not baptized here at St. Mary’s, we will need a copy of the certificate from that church.

 

 

Please return all completed forms as soon as possible. They can be mailed in, dropped in the collection basket, or you can stop by the Faith Formation Office beginning Monday, August 22nd. Registration will also take place in the Faith Formation Office after all masses the weekends of August 21st &; 22nd and August 27th &; 28th.

 

The 2022/2023 school year Sunday classes begin on September 11th and Monday classes begin on September 12th. Approximately one week before classes begin, you will receive the Faith Formation Program Booklet that will have your child’s class assignment.

 

If we run into difficulty putting your child into the session you request, you will receive a phone call before that time so you will be aware of any needed adjustments. I am so looking forward to working with you and your children in fostering our faith. It takes a village to raise a child and the community of St. Mary’s is ready to take on that responsibility!

 

If you have any questions, please contact me after August 21 at at phone: 663-7934 or e-mail: mweeks@stmarycrownpoint.org.

Sincerely,

Marian Weeks
Faith Formation Coordinator

Faith Formation Calendar

OCIC is a process designed for children grade 3 or older who were baptized in Protestant faiths or who have never been baptized, that come to the parish to celebrate First Eucharist.  A class of special instructions is offered on Monday evening from 6:15-7:30p.m. to prepare them for the Sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation and Eucharist.  At the Easter Vigil, the candidate, if not baptized is baptized and if already baptized, makes a Profession of Faith and receives the Eucharist.
