FAITH FORMATION 2020-2021
After extended deliberation, the parish has decided that some classes will be in person and some online.
Grades pre-K/K/1: Though we planned to offer this class, we are now unable to do so.  We may be able to start classes in January. If you have a student in first grade, we do have an option for independent study. Contact Faith Formation Director, Nuriel Abdenur for details.
Grades 2/3 (First Communion):This class will be offered in-person.
First Class: Wednesday, November 4th, 6:00pm-7:15pm, Community Center
Please contact the church where your child was baptized for a current Certificate of Baptism, due with registration.

Retreat: Sunday, Oct 4th, 11am-4pm
If your teen plans to be confirmed on November 1st of this year or in the spring of 2021, he/she is required to attend the NET retreat this Sunday, October 4th from 11am-4pm in the community center.  Please make sure that your teen is registered for the new year of faith formation if he/she will be confirmed in the spring of 2020-21.  You may register here if you have not already done so:
 The retreat will be conducted by a team of college-age students who are part of the NET Ministries.  Students will be fed a boxed lunch.  We ask that students dress for the weather, as part of the retreat may happen outside.  For that reason, we recommend jackets, no shorts, and perhaps a hat or thin gloves in case they are needed.
If you have any questions about the retreat, please contact Confirmation coordinator Camille Curtiss, 952-221-5980.
First Class: November 8th, time TBD
Please contact the church where your child was baptized for a current Certificate of Baptism, due with registration.
