"Faith seeks understanding": it is intrinsic to faith that a believer desires to know better the One in whom he has put his faith, and to understand better what He has revealed; a more penetrating knowledge will in turn call forth a greater faith, increasingly set afire by love"
-The Catechism of the Catholic Church Paragraph 158
Welcome to Saint Patrick Cathedral Faith Formation! We are happy you are here and look forward to accompanying you and your children on the journey of faith! Our Faith Formation classes are offered to assist your children, and maybe even you, in coming to know and love God more fully and recieve more deeply the graces available to us through the Church and Her Sacraments! Faith Formation classes are just a small part of following Jesus' request to 'let the children come' to Him. Children thrive when they are introduced to Jesus at home and receive a Catholic upbringing in their family life, worship regularly at Sunday Mass, feel a sense of community, and participate in ongoing Religious Education. Wherever you, as a parent or a collective family unit, are in your Faith journey, we are here to help you!
Classes for children grades K-8 will resume in the Fall on Sundays from 9:00AM to 10:00AM.
*Note: Confirmation in the Diocese of Norwich ordinarily happens in Eighth Grade but the preparation for such is a TWO year prgram so 7th grade is Year 1 and 8th grade is Year 2. Both happen Sundays from 9:00AM-10:00AM.
Registration for all Faith Formation classes can be found here: Faith Formation Registration 2023-2024
Please feel free to contact us with any questions, concerns, needs, or ideas. Be assured of our prayers. God bless you!
