Children's Faith Formation
First and Second Grade - First Eucharist and First Reconciliation
First and Second Graders prepare for these two Sacraments under the instruction of the Director of Religious education and trained Catechists. This include both religious education for the children as well as adult education for the parents as the primary educators in their domestic church.
Third, Fourth, and Fifth Grade
Third, Fourth, and Fifth Graders continue to broaden their understanding of the God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, the Sacraments, the Church, and the loving mercy and forgiveness of the Lord.
Sixth Seventh and Eighth Grades – Confirmation
Sixth Seventh and Eighth Graders begin the preparation for Confirmation by studying their role in the Church and how they can minister to others by using the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The Sixth and seventh grade focuses on understand who they are in relationship to God using the scriptures as a means of God communicating his precious love of his creation. In Eight grade as prepare for Confirmation and receiving the Gifts of the Spirit and how to use these gifts for the Kingdom of God.
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.
