FAITH FORMATION REGISTRATION 2017-2018

2017 – 2018 FAITH FORMATION REGISTRATION

Faith Formation registration has begun for the upcoming catechetical year that will begin the weekend of September 9/10, 2017. Please print out and follow the directions on the following document:

A short word on discernment for sacramental prep… If your child is to be enrolled in sacramental prep (first reconciliation, first communion and confirmation) it is understood that there will be weekly participation at the weekend mass. If you are not ready or willing to comply with this requisite, your discernment should be not to enroll your child into the sacramental program. Participation in just the catechesis classes will not be considered adequate preparation for the reception of the sacraments. The Church has too many members “in name only”. We are not interested in enabling a dead, cultural Catholicism.

ST. ANN HOMESCHOOL MINISTRY

St. Ann Church values the dedication and the contributions to parish life of our homeschooling families. In an effort to support our homeschooling families we have events throughout the year that cater to their needs and provide faith filled activities for the children. They include, but are not limited to:

  • FAMILY HOLY HOURS – We meet periodically (about 6 times per year) to worship Christ in the Blessed Sacrament as families with prayer that is geared towards young children. Please check our parish calendar and our Facebook Events for dates.
  • SUMMER VBS – Each year we host an unapolagetically Catholic VBS. Last year (2016) we used the catchat Catholympics VBS and are currently planning for this year’s VBS which will be held during the week of Aug. 7th -11th. We have Holy Mass every day and so much fun. Registration will begin before summer starts. Watch the bulletins and this webpage for more news.
  • ALL SAINTS PARTY – The Saturday closest to the Solemnity of All Saints is reserved for our incredible ALL SAINTS PARTY. Dress as your favorite saint, play games, go fishing, take a cake walk, and acquire so many yummy treats.
  • ARCH HOMESCHOOL GRADUATION – Our parish and parish center is the home to the yearly ARCH homeschool graduation mass and ceremony. Congrats to all our homeschool grads!
  • FAMILY CONFESSIONS AND FAMILY STATIONS OF THE CROSS IN LENT – Every Friday in Lent we have a “Family Stations of the Cross” in the afternoon and also a confession opportunity specifically for families with babysitting.
  • HOMESCHOOL CLASS TIME -We are currently planning the creation of a homeschool co-op on Fridays, as well as other course offerings during the week including Spanish. Contact Patrick Ginty pginty.dre@gmail.com for inquiries.

St. Ann Parish encourages our parents to the first formators of their children in the faith. We understand that many times our parents want to form their children for the sacraments. In order to facilitate this we can help guide you regarding curriculums that are available as well as providing retreats, rehearsals and dates for the sacraments. All families will be expected to meet the minimum requirements set forth by the diocese for reception of the sacraments. Please see the documents below for more information.
