A community praying, growing, serving & welcoming in Jesus Christ

Registration

Welcome to St. Sylvester Faith Formation 2022-2023  

PROGRAM & REGISTRATION INFORMATION IS BELOW

We hope you and your families are doing well and enjoying the summer. We are excited to share with you the plans for the coming Faith Formation year!  We continue to develop the program to be more family-oriented, balancing Church and home life, empowering and encouraging parents to be witnesses of the faith and providing opportunities for families to experience God's loving presence in all they do and in all the  places they are!

This is what the program will look like for the 2022/2023 year:
- All classes will meet at the parish, except for some of the Individualized Faith Formation (IFF) classes, which are designed to assist and support children who have special needs in preparing for and receiving Sacraments.  
- Class times will be one hour and fifteen minutes instead of one hour long with exceptions for IFF.  
- Classes will meet, for the most part, every other week.  
- There will be a Saturday/Sunday Mass component for every Level to be involved in.  
- There will be Mass Reflection Forms to be completed once a month.  
- Children's Liturgy will be offered twice a month which will be helpful for children in completing the Mass Reflection Forms.  
- Different Levels will be invited to bring cookies, donuts, etc. to Hospitality on specific Sundays that coincide with Children's Liturgy.
  
     Level 1 will meet once a month on Saturday from 9:00 to 10:15AM in the Parish Center.  Parents will sign their child into their assigned classroom and then go downstairs to meet with the other adults for hospitality and a parent presentation.  They will sign their child out of class  at 10:15AM.  

     Levels 2-6 will meet at the same time so parents will be able to drop off their children of different levels all at the same time.  Level 2-6 will meet Tuesday and Thursday from 4:45 to 6:00PM and on Wednesday from 5:15 to 6:30PM.  You will choose one of these days. Classes will meet once per week, every other week, on the day and time you choose.  

     Levels 3,4,5 Home Taught will meet once a month on Saturday from 10:30 - 11:45AM for a lesson and/or activity.  The remaining lessons will be done at home and checked each month.

     Level 7 will meet Tuesday and Thursday from 6:15 to 7:30PM. You will choose one of these days. Classes will meet once per week, every other week, on the day and time you choose.  Level 7 will attend the 5:00PM Mass once a month on designated Saturdays.

     Level 8 will have immediate preparation and celebrate Confirmation in the fall.  After Confirmation they will be invited to participate in a leadership role at the Saturday 5PM Mass once a month.  

**Detailed calendars will be available online prior to classes beginning.

Once again, thank you for your ongoing patience and cooperation.   We look forward to serving your family.  Stay healthy, happy, holy, and hope-filled…for with Jesus all things are possible. Mark 10: 27
