2020 Faith Formation Up-Coming Dates:

First Communion - Saturday, September 26 at 10:00am

Confirmation - Sunday, October 4 at 3:00pm

First Reconciliation - Saturday, October 17 at 10:00am

 A schedule of Faith Formation Sessions/Retreats/Interviews, etc. that are needed to properly prepare each candidate will be forthcoming as all grade levels still have some topics to cover and review is not only required but will certainly be needed.

IMPORTANT: Guests may be limited to comply with capacity regulations. This will be communicated as the sacramental date nears and more information becomes available.

The Sacraments are for every child, even those with special needs. The Diocese of Buffalo’s Department of Lifelong Faith Formation has a resource person with experience available to assist our parish in developing a plan to meet the individual needs of a child with disabilities. If someone in your family is in need of these services, please contact Dianne Wysocki in the Religious Education Office.
