Children’s Faith Formation

Holy Name’s youth religious education program is designed to provide for the faith formation and spiritual development of children from from pre-Kindergarten through age 17. The sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion typically occur in 3rd grade, whereas Confirmation occurs in 9th grade (or beyond). All three sacraments require two years of religious education immediately prior, either at Holy Name or another Catholic parish. Grades pre-K through 8th have class on Sunday from 10-11:30 am with 30 classes across the school year, whereas Confirmation has class on periodic Tuesdays from 6:30-8 pm with 10 classes in total.

Volunteer teachers and assistants are needed and always welcome. Education and certification is available for those who volunteer.
