Faith Formation

 

 

For Children and Youth

Mission Statement

The Most Blessed Sacrament Faith Formation Program is an essential part of the mission of the parish. The parish supports parents and guardians who are the primary teachers of the faith. The goal of the program is to form the students to be disciples of Jesus Christ, capable of living life with Catholic-Christian values. The program is rooted in the Sunday celebration of the Eucharist where the entire parish draws strength from both word and Sacrament.

 


 

Most Blessed Sacrament Parish offers formation in the Catholic faith for children from grade 1 through grade 10. Scheduled classes meet from September into April.
