SMK Faith Formation Kindergarten – Grade 12

SMK K - 12 Faith Formation meets Sunday mornings, 9 – 10:15 a. m. 

Kindergarten – Grade 8 uses the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies program.  Each lesson flows from the words of Jesus Christ in the Sunday Gospels. Children learn their faith – including instructions in doctrine, sacraments, commandments, and prayer – within the rhythms and seasons of the liturgical year, encouraging a growing participation in the life of the parish community.

Freshmen & Sophomores will be delving deeper in their Catholic faith with Confirmation preparation in mind.

Juniors and Seniors study the mass using Altaration: The Mystery of the Mass Revealed by Ascension Press.  Altaration is a study on the Mass for teens that features powerful cinematography, inspiring presenters, and engaging workbook resources. Altaration uses humor, stories, and small group discussion to capture your teen’s attention and instill in them a deep and lasting love for the Mass.

We prepare and celebrate for First Reconciliation in grade 2, First Eucharist in grade 3, and Confirmation in grades 10 – 12. Information regarding sacrament preparation can be found by selecting the Home Menu tab SACRAMENTS.

If your child has not celebrated Reconciliation or Eucharist and is older than the preparation years, please contact Francine Gettelfinger, faithformation@yoursmk.org for individualized preparation.
