Children's Faith Formation
The Sacred Heart Religious Education program will continue to mature the faith that his developed in the domestic church (home) by the children's parents. We will be emphasizing developing and building on their relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. As the children grow in this relationship, we will show how their knowledge of Jesus helps them to better understand the Father and the Holy Spirit in union in the Trinity, and how they are invited to take part in this love of God. We are Sacramentally based to help the children better understand the gifts, graces and blessings they receive, when they were baptized, and will receive Jesus in the Eucharist, his cleansing salvific grace in reconciliation and the Holy Spirit in Confirmation.
First and Second Grade
First and Second Grade will focus on Holy Communion and the Gift that we are loved, cared for, and provided for, by our God.
Third, Fourth and Fifth Grade
Third, Fourth and Fifth Grade will focus on God’s mercy, forgiveness, and justice and the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Grade
Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Grade will focus on Confirmation and that they are chosen by God to share his “good news” by their actions and words with the gifts of the Holy Spirit to lead them on this journey.
RCIA, or Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is the course for those interested in the Catholic Church to 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.
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 at (248)-852-4170 Ext. 15 for more information.
