Sacred Heart of Jesus *** St. Ann *** Holy Name of Jesus
We strive to provide the best possible Faith
Formation Programs for our Parish Family. Of course we can't do this alone and
we rely on our parents and volunteers as invaluable resources to continue the
journey of faith.
Faith Formation (K-12)
Classes for grades K-8
start at 6:30 p.m. and go until 7:30 p.m. each Wednesday night. Our local
Knights of Columbus council is providing dinner for all students in grades K-8
at Sacred Heart School starting at 6:00 p.m. each week. Classes for
students in grades 9-12 are from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m., and they are being fed in
the green room at Sacred Heart Church as part of their class each week.
Preparations: Students in second
grade will prepare to receive the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First
Eucharist. Students in grades 10 and 11 will prepare to receive the
sacrament of Confirmation. Weekly Mass attendance is required for all
Catholics. It is especially important for all children preparing for the
Sacraments to attend weekly Mass with their family.
practice prayers at home and continue to use the materials we provided for "at
home" religious education.
As part of our
commitment to maintaining a Safe Environment Program, all parents must come
into the Sacred Heart School to pick up their children at their classrooms.
Adult Faith Formation
Alpha is offered for all
interested adults every Wednesday evening from 6:00 to 7:30. There is no
cost, no stress, and no obligation...just a great meal and an opportunity to
discuss life's biggest questions in an open, non-judgmental atmosphere.
You can find out more at alphausa.org. Adult Bible Study programs
are offered as are other opportunities for adult faith formation. Parish
missions and events hosted by our parish and/or the Diocese of Marquette are
scheduled throughout the year and are usually advertised in our church
bulletin, our website and our Facebook page.
