Faith Formation Announcements

Faith Formation registration will begin on the weekend of Saturday, June 29th and Sunday, June 30th.  Registration forms will be available in the Gathering Space.  Forms and payment must be completed and submitted by Sunday, August 25.  The first day of Faith Formation Classes will be Sunday, September 8.  For those students who will be receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation this Fall, classes will resume on Wednesday,  August 21, from 6:30 PM until 8:00 PM.  Please note that the class will now meet every week leading up to Confirmation. A date for Confirmation will be announced as soon as we receive word from the diocese.  Volunteers are needed for Faith Formation for the upcoming school year.  We would like to begin holding one class for each separate grade level rather than combining grade levels as in years past.  However, this will require more teachers and teacher’s assistants.  Anyone interested in becoming a Faith Formation teacher or assistant can contact Paul Kankiewicz in the Parish Religious Education Office at 828-264-8338 Ext. 22 or email
