Diocese of Rochester, NY
Your child's faith will serve as a firm foundation in the years to come. The time and effort you have given to providing your child with a faith-based family will help make them confident in their ability to cope with many of the adventures they will face. We are here for your family to help in any way we can, to allow your child grow and be all they can be. We look forward to working with and getting to know your family. Please contact us with any questions! (585) 594-1441.
We offer Faith Formation classes for Pre-K through completion of Confirmation, Liturgy of the Word (LOW), and Vacation Bible School (VBS).
Faith Formation Classes:
- Pre-K/K class includes ages 3-5, and is centered around age-appropriate Bible activities. The class is held during the 11:00am Sunday Mass. Parents are encouraged to register their child. There is no fee for this class. We begin in September and follow the regular Faith Formation Calendar. Parents will bring their child up to the classroom before Mass, and pick them up from the classroom directly after Mass.
- Faith Formation classes for grades 1-7 are offered on weeknights September through May. The 2016-2017 calendar outlines the schedule of classes and some events. Click on the following links for specific information on Sacraments:
- You can register your children through the Faith Formation Office.
- Each family must have medical and emergency contact information listed on the registration form!!
- In the event of inclement weather, please check channels 8, 10, and 13 for cancellation announcements. We will also try our best to send an email making you aware of cancellations.
Liturgy of the Word (LOW):
- LOW is a great opportunity for the children of the parish to participate in the weekly Gospel message in a hands-on and age appropriate environment. LOW is offered during most masses throughout the Faith Formation year. If your children wish to attend, please have them follow the LOW leader during the church procession. They will proceed to a Faith Formation classroom and return to Mass after the homily. No registration is needed, and children can participate whenever they choose.
Vacation Bible School (VBS):
- VBS is a one-week Summer program that is filled with fun and faith for Pre-K through 8th grade. After 8th grade, teens are welcome and encouraged to join our VBS volunteer team!
- Children and families are asked, encouraged, and welcome to participate in the celebration of Mass. There are many opportunities for everyone to be involved ~ helping with hospitality, singing in the choir, reading with a lector, bringing up the gifts, going to the front with Father Bob during the children’s homily, and joining Father Bob on the altar during the Eucharistic Prayer. This mass is a new and unique way for children of all ages to take part in the Mass. We look forward to seeing you there! Click here for the Family Mass schedule.
