Faith Formation at Our Lady of Grace
Faith Formation processes are available for children and teens, Kindergarten through High School. In addition to regular formation sessions during the academic year, these sessions include Sacramental Preparation for Penance/Reconciliation, First Communion and Confirmation. Faith Formation opportunities are also available for adults interested in becoming Catholic through the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) or for Catholics wanting to learn more about our Faith.

The content of faith is the heritage of the whole church. It is from birth to death. There is no graduation from faith formation; it is for all age levels. When it comes to children, parents are the primary educators of their children in religious formation. The parish is here to assist you in this endeavor.
In his "Letter to Families," Pope John Paul II wrote:
Parents are the first and the most important educators of their own children, and they also possess a fundamental competence in this area; they are educators because they are parents.
The word of God found in Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition is the single source for handing on the Christian message. The presentation of the Christian message centers on the person of Jesus Christ. Every aspect of catechesis promotes following Jesus Christ. The Gospels are central to the catechetical message. They are the word of God, written by human authors inspired by the Holy Spirit."
