How do I enroll my child in formation for Confirmation?

We are beginning a new initiative at St. Catharine in 2021 called Family of Faith.


We are asking PSR/CCD/Sunday School (whatever you want to call it!) families to participate, along with the rest of our parish, in Family of Faith.


All families with children in kindergarten through eighth grade are strongly encouraged to register and attend, and families with children preparing to receive a Sacrament, must be enrolled in (and regularly attending) Family of Faith.


Students preparing to receive Confirmation will have four additional sessions throughout the year with a catechist to prepare them for this amazing sacrament:

We believe that this program is better suited to provide true spiritual formation to the children and their families.


At St Catharine, we realize that "parents have the first responsibility for the education of their children. The role of parents in education is of such importance that it is almost impossible to provide an adequate substitute". (Catechism of the Catholic Church #2221, 2223)


If you are preparing your child at home to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation at St. Catharine, please contact Toni Carmon, toni@stcatharine.com to let us know the materials you are using and to work out the details necessary for reception of the Sacrament.
