All Public School Children
All children in our Holy Cross Parish Family have the right to be educated in their faith. Our Faith Formation Program provides faith formation for all students who attend public school. Young children often have questions about God. We will help you answer those questions when you register your children for Faith Formation. We have Sunday School classes for 3, 4, and 5 year olds during our 10am Mass on Sunday morning, along with classes for children in 1st through 10th grades. We also provide sacramental preparation for First Eucharist and First Reconciliation in the 2nd Grade, and Confirmation for Juniors in High School. Faith Formation classes begin in mid-September. Please see article below about dates and times.

Faith Formation Start-up Dates
SUNDAY SCHOOL: 3, 4, 5 yr. olds
Sunday, Sept. 18 – 10:00am in the school
(On the first day of class we will begin with a Parent Meeting at 9:15 in Room 126)
GRADES 1 – 10: Wednesday, Sept. 21 - Parent Night – 6:00 – 7:30pm in church

Youth Catechumenate
Sometimes children do not receive First Eucharist (Communion) or Reconciliation (Confession), or even Baptism for various reasons. Don’t let a child you know continue to miss out on faith formation / religious education. Call the Faith Formation office to register your older children for Baptism or First Eucharist. This is especially important for children as young as 7, up to age 14 who have not been baptized or received First Eucharist. Sixth through eighth graders who have not received Reconciliation, and or other children who have been away from the church are also welcomed back in the Youth Catechumenate. Call Marti in the Faith Formation Office for more information and to enroll your child.

Tuition Help Needed/Sponsor a Student
If you would like to help with tuition aid or sponsor a needy family to attend our Faith Formation classes, your help would be greatly appreciated. Just call the Faith Formation Office at 468.6554. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
