The Faith Formation Program consists of grades Pre-K through 12th Grade. The faith season runs from September through May with most classes meeting on either Sunday morning or Wednesday evening. Pre-K, our Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Program, meets on Wednesdays from 12:10 p.m. to 2:10 p.m. while 9th and 10th grade meet from 6:15 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Sundays. The Faith Formation Program provides sacramental preparation for the children of Saint John the Evangelist Catholic Church. To receive the sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Eucharist, or Confirmation, children must attend a minimum of two consecutive years of religious instruction. Specifically, to receive the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist, children must be at least seven years old and in the second grade. To receive the sacrament of Confirmation, children must have a minimum of two consecutive years of religious instruction, be at least 15 years old, and be in tenth grade or higher.
Utilizing the insights of scripture and tradition as a resource and reinforcing what the Catholic Church teaches and believes, the catechists of the Saint John the Evangelist Faith Formation Program instruct the children of the parish to live their lives in imitation of Christ and to respond to their baptismal call to follow Him. Parents who wish to enroll their children in the Saint John the Evangelist Faith Formation Program for grades Pre-K to 12th Grade should download a registration form from the link below, complete the registration form, and return both the form and payment to the following address:
