Blessed Sacrament Parish Faith Formation

REGISTRATION FOR THE 2022/23 FAITH FORMATION YEAR WILL BEGIN IN SEPTEMBER!

FAITH FORMATION NEWS FOR 2022/23!

Planning has begun for the 2022/23 Faith Formation year!  We are busy brainstorming new and creative ways to inspire and nurture our young parishoners as we, together, grow more in love with Jesus and our beautiful Catholic faith.  Many volunteers are needed to provide a solid and exciting program. If you have been looking for a way to get involved with Blessed Sacrament Parish in some way, perhaps Faith Formation is for you.

In an effort to maintain a happy and safe environment for everyone, Blessed Sacrament Parish follows all of the protocols put forth by the Diocese of Norwich. 

Before signing up to mentor the youngest of our parish, please read through the following requirements:

1. Every new volunteer must have all Safe Environment paperwork and training completed before the start of classes in September. This will include proof of identification and a screening process. Our Faith Formation staff will guide you through the entire process. Everything takes about 1 hour or less to complete. This may be done on your own or in our office. 

2. Returning volunteers may be asked to renew or update their paperwork and or training.

3.  Mandated Reporter training is also asked of our volunteers every two years.

Guidelines and requirements are subject to change and are all mandated by the Diocese of Norwich. For more information on Safe Environments please see this page of our website.

Currently we have several openings for teachers and aides and other volunteers. Please note we are required to have at least 2 adults in each classroom setting.
