Saint Andrew Catholic Church and School

Faith Formation

If you haven’t already registered for the 2019-2020 Faith Formation program, your family’s registration, packet will be mailed to you soon. The early registration period is over, and the fee is $100 per student. Please register by August 9, and don’t let cost be an obstacle; we will work with you!

Turn them in with a payment in the collection basket, the blue Faith Formation box in the Gathering Area, or the Parish Office mail slot—or stop by in person or use the Online Giving button on the parish homepage to pay with a card. Address all envelopes to the attention of Lori Iannuzzelli. To set up a time to come into the office during normal hours —or if you have any questions at all—contact Lori at [email protected] or Jim at [email protected].

Faith formation at the Church of Saint Andrew is an ongoing program of Catholic education and sacramental preparation for children from pre-K through 11th grade. Children can prepare for and receive the sacraments of Reconciliation (Confession) and the Eucharist (Holy Communion) beginning in second grade. The sacrament of Confirmation is generally received in 11th grade, with preparation beginning in ninth and 10th grade.

We strive to instill in our youth and families that they are a vibrant part of our faith community.  As stewards of God’s love we provide opportunities to deepen their faith and broaden their knowledge, empowering the youth of our parish to continue lifelong faith formation.

We are always looking for faith-filled adults interested in serving as teachers or small-group leaders for our child and teen Faith Formation program. If you feel called to share your faith with our young parishioners, even as a helper or a sub, contact Jim Thorp at [email protected] or 763-441-1483.
