Elementary Classes 1-5:

Traditionally  faith formation classes begin in first grade.  Parents are the first teachers of their children.  We are honored to walk on your child's faith journey with you.  As we assist with the faith formation of your child, we are using the program:  Alive in Christ, Our Sunday Visitor, as our faith formation curriculum. 

First Reconciliation/First Holy Communion

Following guidelines of the Diocese of Charlotte, sacramental preparation is a two year process.  Traditionally students begin faith formation in first grade and receive the sacraments in second grade.  If however, children do not begin in first grade we will work with parents to have the children placed in the correct level to begin sacramental preparation.

Faith Formation Mission Statement 

“The Faith Formation team, as part of the community of believers will try to bring scripture to life through our living example, by learning, sharing and acting out our Catholic faith. In our ministry to our brothers and sisters of all ages we will nurture one another on our faith journey while deepening our understanding of our Catholic beliefs and traditions.

The fundamental task of catechesis is to form disciples of Jesus Christ. Jesus instructed his disciples, prayed with them, showed them how to live and gave them his mission. Our Catholic faith must be known, celebrated, lived and expressed in prayer and works. All Faith Formation programs follow and adhere to the teachings of the Church, and the doctrines of the Catechisms of the Catholic Church. The team of catechists under the direction of the Director of Religious Education have been guided in spirit and instructed on church doctrine, to assist each child in achieving his or her maximum potential in mind, body, and spirit within a Catholic environment.

Six primary tasks for Catechists:

Knowledge ~ Promote the knowledge of the Catholic faith.

Worship ~  Promote knowledge of the meaning of the Liturgy and Sacraments

Moral Life ~  Promote moral formation in Jesus Christ.

Prayer ~ Teach the Catholic how to pray with Christ.

Community LIfe ~ Prepare the Catholic to live in community and to participate actively in the life mission                   of the Catholic Church through the parish and diocese.  

Service ~ To promote a missionary spirit that prepares the faithful to be present as Christians in society.
