Children Faith Formation
Chair: Dene' Rosser
Mission: The mission of the catechetical program of Holy Spirit Catholic Church is to help all participants and their families develop a relationship with the person of Jesus Christ and to live out their Catholic faith in ways that draw others to Christ and the Church. We seek to carry out this mission through catechesis, spiritual growth and service.
Activities: All children not enrolled in Catholic schools are asked to enroll in the parish catechetical program. Faith formation classes are held August through April and are taught by parents and parishioners. Sacrament Preparation for First Reconciliation and First Communion is held in the spring.
Calling all children and adults! Join us this summer for our new VBS program, Jesus the Good Shepherd! Children ages 4 through 6th grade are invited to participate and we are in need of adult volunteers to be group leaders. We will spend the week of July 24-28th doing exciting activities that introduce all of us to who Jesus is and how much he loves us. This is a unique year because a team of people here at Holy Spirit are creating this program which gives us the freedom to make it uniquely Catholic! Here are some exciting parts of the program, just to name a few!
-A week-long mural craft
-A prayer time rotation where the children will learn about Jesus in the Eucharist through adoration and a group Mass on Friday
-Originally composed songs
-Bible stories that help children see Jesus as the Good Shepherd and themselves as the sheep whom Jesus seeks out and protects
-And everyone’s favorites: snacks and games!
Cost is $10 per child or $30 per family if you sign up before July 1st. After July 1st it is $20 per child or $60 per family. Program is free for children of volunteers and a nursery is available for children of volunteers who are under the age of 4. All children and volunteers will receive a t-shirt!
