St. Bonaventure’s religious education classes will begin the first week of October. Our Faith Formation programs begin with children as young as age 4 and kindergarten and continue through high school. We offer a Sunday morning program for preschool age 4 and kindergarten-age children that meet during the 9am Mass. This program is designed to share stories from the Bible and to engage the youngest of our community to grow in their faith with interactive activities.
We also offer classes after school during the week for students who are in the 1st through 5th grade. Each grade builds on the child’s faith journey with Jesus. This includes preparation for the Sacraments of our faith. We will share the weekly Gospel with students to increase their awareness of Jesus’ life and teachings. We will talk about the foundations of our Catholic faith, how we live it and how we build that faith to become who Jesus wants us to be. We will meet your child wherever they are in their faith journey with class offerings for Baptism, First Communion, Reconciliation and Confirmation. We also have Sacramental Preparation classes that are taught in Spanish.
Registration for Faith Formation Classes will be held on Saturday, August 27, Sunday, August 28 and Sunday, September18, from 9AM to 6PM in Classroom A-1. We will be available to answer any questions you have and assist you with registering your child for the appropriate class. You will also be able to register in the church office after August 28. If your child has been in our Faith Formation program last year, you will receive a packet of materials in the mail in mid-August. There will also be registration forms in the church foyer, in the church office and on our website.
Please bring both the Student Registration Form and the Class Selection/Emergency Contact Form with you when you register your child(ren). We look forward to having your child in our Faith Formation Programs!
