Call to Discipleship: Are you Called to be a Catechist?

The ministry of catechesis is greatly important.  The work of a Catechist or Assistant Catechist is a beautiful ministry in which one is called by Christ.  The call to be a Catechist is a call to discipleship:  to build relationships with children and families and share our Catholic faith. Contact the Director of Faith Formation to learn how you can be involved.

 


Second graders celebrate the sacrament of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist.  Parents and catechists are involved in the preparation process.  The beginning of the year focuses on Reconciliation and receiving the gift of God’s Mercy.  The second half the children continue their journey with Christ learning more about the Mass and Eucharist.

 

 

St. John’s Confirmation is a 2-year preparation process during the 9th and 10th grade year. Confirmation candidates immerse themselves in group study, retreat experiences, service projects and personal prayer.  For more information, contact the Youth Minister/Confirmation Coordinator.

 

 

Please contact the Director of Faith Formation if your child has not received his or her sacraments.

 

High School Youth Ministry helps to inspire and encourage young adults to live their Catholic faith and hopes to bring them into a deeper relationship with Christ and His Church. This is done through Wednesday night 3D (Dedicated Driven Disciples) sessions, retreats, socials, and service projects. 

Adult Faith Formation groups meet throughout the school year.  All are welcome. Check the bulletin or our website (click on "Adult Faith Formation") for more details.
