FAITH FORMATION REGISTRATION
The Faith Formation program and staff/volunteers are looking forward to the Fall with some new updates to meet the uncertainties of the pandemic.
To enable us not to forget the importance of faith formation and the spiritual growth of our students, we have decided to allow parents two options for their child/children. We will have in-person classes and virtual classes. Please sign up your children. Registration forms are available online on the parish website as well as in the Parish Office during business hours.
Classes have begun. We are offering sessions as follows:
Sundays – 9:15 am – 10:15 am (GS & EDGE) & 2:00 pm – 3:15 pm (HS/Confirmation)
Tuesdays – 6:30 pm – 7:45 pm (GS & EDGE)
The Schedules are still in progress; once updated, they will be posted. Thank you for your patience.
Please call sister Gemma Abonge for your questions. Rest assured of my prayers.
NEED CATECHISTS & VOLUNTEERS
Is God calling you to assist with the faith Formation of our children in these unprecedented times?
I need lots of volunteers, more than ever before since there will be in-person and virtual classes. I need volunteers who can help prepare lessons for the virtual classes and do some follow-up with the students. I will also need more teachers for in-person instruction, since we will have fewer students per classroom to observe social distancing.
Please kindly consider to be God’s hands and voice to the students.
You can call me at 210-696-0896, ext. 206, or email me at email@example.com for any questions and clarifications. Thanks very much.
FAITH FORMATION REGISTRATION
Registration for Faith Formation Classes for the 2020-2021 season is underway!
“Faith Formation is looking forward to the Fall with hopes that you all are as well. I am thinking about how we can all have an awesome and faith-filled semester and overcome the challenges that Covid-19 presents. Registration for Faith Formation will be open in August. The Registration Form is online on our Registration Forms & Schedules page or you can pick up yours from the Faith Formation office. We keep praying, while waiting to hear what the Archdiocese will suggest. Please call me for any questions. Rest assured of my prayers.” ~Sister Gemma Abonge
Help your child/children meet their best friend Jesus by bringing them to Faith Formation.
Currently, Faith Formation sessions are as follows:

*EDGE is a Catholic middle school youth ministry program. It provides a safe, fun place for youth to find solid Catholic community, to get answers to their questions about faith and, most importantly, to experience Jesus in a profound and personal way. EDGE resources speak to the physical, psychological, cognitive, relational, and spiritual maturation of middle school youth.
This is our third year for EDGE. It was a success over the last two years and we pray it is a success again. We look forward to our youth growing in the Faith through its extraordinary approach.
