elementary school FAITH FORMATION
COVID has changed the way we do Elementary Faith Formation at Church of the Assumption. We promise to provide the best Catholic formation for your kids as we continue to monitor and navigate through these COVID times. As a community of faith, we are the church. We are bonded together through our faith, no matter the location.
Due to COVID-19, Faith Formation classes will begin virtually using Zoom and transitioning to in- person classes if and when it is safe to do so. You will receive a welcome letter and calendar with more information. Zoom classes will be held on Sunday mornings bi-weekly from 10-10:45 am.Thank you for working with us as we transition into a new class format and Zoom into our Faith together!
What is children’s Faith Formation?
In children’s faith formation it is our goal to provide the fundamentals of our faith in an engaging and supportive atmosphere. Our programs combine religious education, participation in weekly liturgies, faith families, and preparation for sacraments. Each component is equally important and will provide a joyful experience designed to immerse children into our Catholic community while developing their relationship with Jesus.
How does Faith Formation work?
Our faith formation sessions will meet approximately twice each month. The purpose of our sessions is to teach the children about God’s word, the Catholic Church and our responsibilities as Christians. During the student sessions, children meet with their catechist leaders to learn the practices of our faith, our beliefs and to explore how to make God an everyday part of life.
You must be a registered parishioner of Assumption Parish to enroll your child in a class.
Sacrament Information: Assumption has a two-year preparation policy for receiving the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist. If your child has had no formal training in Faith Formation within the past 2 years, they will be placed in a basic Formation class and enter into the sacrament preparation class the following year.
For those students receiving their First Communion in 2020-2021, a copy of your child’s Baptismal Certificate is REQUIRED WITH REGISTRATION FORM, unless your child was baptized at Assumption.
