****************************************

WELCOME and thank you for visiting the Sacred Hearts Parish Faith Formation page! Sacred Hearts Parish offers faith formation for students in grades K-10th. Classes meet regularly throughout the school year and help children develop a close, personal, relationship with God and a deeper understanding of the Catholic faith.

The program is responsible for sacramental preparation in all grades. Sacramental preparation for Reconciliation and Communion and reception of those sacraments typically takes place in 2nd grade. Sacramental preparation for Confirmation typically takes place in 9th and 10th grade with reception in 11th grade.

Parents of students with special needs are encouraged to contact us about participating in our programs. We look forward to partnering with you to help your child walk by faith.

Blessings,

Mae Ba, Director of Faith Formation

Volunteers Needed Fall 2021

The strength of our program relies upon the generosity and gifts of all of our volunteers. Between 80 and 100 adults help make Religious Education possible each year! While many opportunities require a commitment from September through April, others require less commitment. Those relating to sacramental preparation (2nd grade, 9th grade, and 10th grade) involve some additional preparation, meetings, and events.

Each year we have a variety of volunteer needs:

Catechists – to prepare lessons and present them to children; to help children develop a love for God and an understanding of the Catholic faith

Aides – to assist catechists in the classroom

Substitute teachers - available to cover for teachers unable to attend on particular class dates

Hall monitors - to assist students in safely traveling throughout our buildings and grounds

Office helpers – present during class and/or for a few hours during the week to assist in preparing catechist resources, assisting parents, tracking data, performing inventories.

Grade-Level Mass Coordinators – available to help now and then to prepare for Sunday morning family Masses

Safety Curriculum Teachers – to help teach, at three times throughout the year, the Archdiocese’s required safety curriculum

VBS volunteers – play a small or large role in the organizing and running of our Vacation Bible School

All Religious Education volunteers fill out an annual CORI and complete the Protecting God’s Children program.
