Your Catholic initiation
Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”
— John 6:53-54
Welcome To The Faith
Congratulations to our parents who have children who will begin their preparation for the reception of First Holy Communion. Our Program has four components:
Small Group (Class) Instruction
Classes meet at 410 Hudson Street — next to the Parish Offices.
Classes begin at 10:15 AM and end at 11:30 AM. Please be on time.
The student text books will be distributed to students on the first day of class in September and January respectively.
Supplemental material may also be distributed throughout the year.
The Family Mass Component
The purpose of the family Masses is to gather the students and families together to celebrate and worship with the wider Christian Family. Mass attendance is essential for all Faith Formation students, especially for those preparing to receive First Communion. Students and their parents are therefore invited and expected to attend the 9:00 AM Family Mass each week.
