Grades 7-8 Faith Formation at Blessed Sacrament Parish

In grades 7 and 8 we are using Sadlier, "We Believe, We Live our Faith, Vol. 1".  The grade 7 students will use the same text for 2 years.  We will be discovering in more depth who God is and who Jesus is by taking a closer look at the Commandments and our Sacrements. 

The teens will meet 4 times a month.  The sessions will consist of two in person classes, a monthly Saturday evening Mass and service event, and one special session each month with guest speakers sharing their faith journey either on zoom or in person.

We will be living out our faith through learning, service, prayer and practice.

Students may choose one of two class times:  Mondays at St. Matthew's from 7pm-8pm or Tuesdays at St. Bernard's from 6pm-7pm.

On-line Registration will begin in September.

Many volunteers are needed to teach or aide in these classes.  Or, perhaps you would like to share your faith journey.  Please contact the faith formation office, or Bridget directly for more information.

Grades 9 and 10 (Confirmation Prep years 1 & 2)

The Blessed Sacrament Parish Confirmation program follows the guidelines of the Diocese of Norwich. The program consists of 2 years of studying our Faith, Catholic Social Teaching, the Workings of the Holy Spirit in our lives, and Community Service. We will delve into a deeper prayer life through learning and participating in different devotions of the Catholic Faith, attending Mass together, and through Adoration. Our vision for our students is that they will grow in wisdom, knowledge, and love, having the confidence to go out into the world to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ and live a faith-filled life, steeped in the Catholic Tradition.

We will be using "Chosen Your Journey Toward Confirmation"  by Ascension Press
