Children's Faith Formation
First Eucharist and Reconciliation
Second-graders prepare for these two sacraments under the instruction of the Catechists, and the Director of Religious Education. There are five meetings throughout the year for the parents.
Middle school students in seventh and eighth grade attend weekly Religious Education classes. Seventh graders participate in a day retreat at Subiaco. In eighth grade the students have an overnight retreat at Marianhill. There are five parent meetings throughout the eight grade year. Students are confirmed in the spring of their ninth-grade year. Confirmation sessions are held on Sunday mornings for approximately an hour and fifteen minutes. Parents and sponsors attend the session. For more information please contact the Religious Education office.
RCIA or Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the way that those interested in the Catholic Church learn about the faith and join our family of believers. It is also the process which enables Adult Catholics who are not confirmed to become fully initiated Catholics. Please call the Parish Office at 248-852-4170 for more information.
Liturgy of the Word for Children
A volunteer teacher leads the children (grades K-5) from the Church to the parish center for lessons and discussion on the first reading and the Gospel.
This program, an adaptation of the RCIA, is designed for children age 7 or older who have missed receiving sacraments at the usual age of reception. Call the Religious Education office for more information.
Adult Faith Formation
A variety of adult formation experiences are offered to enhance, nurture and deepen the faith of our parishioners. Among these are: prayer and faith sharing experiences, workshops on various themes or topics, retreats, and courses including Scripture Studies. For further information, watch the Parish Bulletin, or contact the Parish Office at 248-852-4170.
