Building Your Domestic Church in Christ

Faith Formation for Parents and their Children, grades Preschool 3 - 5th


Holy Spirit Religious Education is here to support and guide parents as they share their Catholic faith with their children.  Faith formation is a life-long journey; On-going participation is expected. 


At Baptism, parents commit to raising their child in the Catholic faith.  As leaders of their domestic church, parents are the primary teachers of their children’s faith educating them by example and instruction. This includes participation in a faith formation program through enrollment in a Catholic School or a parish school of religious education.

Registration for 2021-2022 Religious Education school is underway and will continue until May 1st. Please contact Julie Ravry for questions.

Classes Offered

To support parents, Holy Spirit parish offers Faith Formation and Sacramental Preparation Classes, including:

  • Preschool 3 year old - 5th Grade:  Our program fosters children’s love of God and guides them toward a life of discipleship with interactive lessons and activities celebrating the teachings of the Catholic Church. For reception of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion during the 2nd-grade year, we adhere to the Archdiocesan guidelines that require two years of formal formation either in Catholic school or a parish school of Religion as preparation. Therefore, at 1st grade, all children intending to prepare for sacraments should be enrolled in a Catholic School or parish school of religion. For complete details look under Sacramental Preparation.

Holy Spirit parish offers additional programs for adults and youth (grades 6th – 12th). For more information, look under Adults and Teens.
