United Hearts Prayer Group
The United Hearts Prayer Group will be meeting on Sunday, April 19th at 12:30pm in the Church Hall. All are welcome!
Additional First Communion Preparation Classes
We are adding two additional First Communion Preparation Classes that will take place on Thursday evenings from 5:30 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. in Milette Manor once the regular Faith Formation program ends. These two sessions will be held on May 7th and May 14th.
At our parent meeting back in the fall, we emphasized that to make the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion, students MUST attend all Saturday Sacramental Preparation Classes. Unfortunately, many students have missed one or more of these Saturday classes. In an effort to provide the instruction needed, and to allow these students to make these sacraments this year, we are adding these two sessions.
If your child missed one or more Saturday classes, he/she must be present on May 7th and May 14th or they will not be able to make the sacrament this year. If your child attended ALL Saturday sessions, they do not need to come for these two additional Thursday classes.
Finally, ALL CHILDREN must attend the day of First Reconciliation which has been moved to Thursday, May 28th from 5:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. On this day, the students will go to church for First Reconciliation and will also have a rehearsal so they will know what they are going to do on the day of First Communion.
Register Early for Fall of 2015 & SAVE
Exciting changes are coming to our Faith Formation Program next year! In preparation for these changes, we are currently offering Early Registration at a significant discount. This helps you save money while helping us as we begin to organize classes and plan ahead. Fall comes fast!
Next year’s classes for 1st- 5th grades will take place on Mondays and Tuesdays from 5:45p.m.to 7:00p.m. Classes will begin the week of September 21st. Children will attend only one day a week depending on their grade and level of sacramental preparation. Early Registration will be available to all parents who register their children by June 1st. The fee is reduced to $20.00 per child during this time ($25.00 per Edge/Lifeteen student). Registration forms are now available in the Faith Formation office at Milette Manor (during class time) or at the rectory office during business hours. Please direct any questions you may have to Elia Lerma (email@example.com) or Jennifer McInerney (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Elia Lerma joined our office staff in March to work as Faith Formation Coordinator and help us to make many of the exciting changes and improvements to our Faith Formation program go from a “good idea” to a new reality next fall. You may have already met her on Thursday evenings. If not, she will be at Milette Manor to help as well with the First Communion Sacramental Preparation that will be taking place in May. In just a few short weeks she has jumped right into our busy office environment and brings enthusiasm and energy to her work. We are excited to have her on board and working in this important parish endeavor: helping our young people learn and grow in their faith. Welcome Elia!
