Youth Faith Formation Programs

 

The role of the St. Rita Youth Faith Formation Programs is to help you, the parents, to be first educators of your children in the faith.

Our Faith Formation experiences help the children to deepen the faith that you began, strengthen and continue to share with them.


Overview

St. Rita PSR Faith Formation Programs address the needs of students as they grow in their faith. We offer programs that help children to:

  • Know the Lord
  • Grow in our Catholic Faith
  • Participate in the life of the parish community
  • Assist parents who are the first educators of their children in the life of the Church.
  • Assist parents in preparing the children for the reception of Penance, Eucharist, Confirmation.

Our Faith Formation Programs look very different this year, as we strive to meet the needs of our families during this time of Covid 19.

Kindergarten through Seventh Grade

  • Walking with Families in Faith: Completely home-based instruction.  Each month you will pick up supplies to inspire and guide your family with a home based educational program.  Our directions will make this program simple, fun, and faith filled!

Youth Ministry Based

  • Grades 8-12
  • Teens in Grades 8 and 9 who do not attend Catholic School need to be enrolled.
  • Our 8 and 9 grade PSR program consists of a Catholic Teen Journal.  This journal will guide the teen’s PSR through December.  We will then reevaluate for the second half of the school year.  Each teen will complete 5 of the 8 options for each month.
