Faith Formation Programs for 2017 - 2018 year:
*NEW* If this is a Sacrament Preparation year for one of your children (going into 2nd or 8th grade), or you are new to our program, please call the office at 226-2100 to schedule a 15 minute appointment to return your paperwork.
Monthly Family Program, grades K-7, Confirmation Year 1 & 2 (begins in grade 8): The monthly family program meets once a month EITHER at St. Agnes School from 8:45am-10:15am before the 10:30 Sunday Mass at St. Agnes OR at St. Paul of the Cross Church from 11:15am-12:45pm following the 10:00 Sunday Mass (choose one). Children meet as a group with their family to participate in activities for all ages. If you choose this option, you will work with your child/children in their book with a family guide, and have your child complete the online chapter review and send it to the Director of Faith Formation and Youth Ministry.
Bi-weekly Program, Sunday mornings at Brendan Hall on the campus of St. Rose Church for grades K-7, Confirmation Year 1 & 2 (begins in grade 8): We will meet twice a month from 9:15 am to 10:45 am following the 8:00am Sunday Mass at St. Rose Church. Children who attend this program will meet as a large group, then split up into grade level classes. This option asks that parents participate with their children in an “At Home” session utilizing the Gospel Weeklies handouts. This option does not allow for attendance at the 10:00 am Mass at St. Paul of the Cross, or the 10:30am Mass at St. Agnes twice a month.
Summer Intensive Program, grades 6-9, including Year 1 & 2 Confirmation: This program will meet Sunday through Thursday, June 25-29 this summer from 9:00am – 3:00pm, at the St. Agnes Campus (Sunday is for parent/child and begins with 10am Mass until 3pm). This option also requires 2-5 times attending the Bi-weekly Program throughout the year for grades 6-9. Confirmation has specific requirements to cover.
High School Youth Ministry: This program is for youth in grades 10-12. We will meet monthly following the 10:00am Mass at St. Paul of the Cross, from 11am -1pm.
Sacraments: Under the New Policies for the Diocese of Rochester, candidates for sacraments must be registered in a faith formation program or Catholic School. First Reconciliation is now celebrated before First Eucharist, beginning in 2nd grade, and Confirmation preparation is a two-year process that begins no sooner than 8th grade.
