Join us for our third year of Family Faith Formation at St. Leonard! We offer catechism classes for 1st-8th grade students and parents!

Important Facts:

  • First Communion and Confirmation are both sacraments that REQUIRE TWO YEARS of FORMATION (either in the parish school or in Family Faith Formation).
  • First Communions are celebrated in second grade. Confirmation is celebrated in eighth grade.  Therefore, please be sure to be registered as first and seventh graders respectively.
  • This is a home based program; as such, the majority of book work will be done at home as a family. Parents will be given all necessary resources and supported through the process.
  • Classes will be on the first Sunday of the month from 11:00-12:30 October-May in the school.
  • During monthly class time, there will be programs and class work/ book review for the children. Parents will have the opportunity to go over material, learn about upcoming family activities and service projects, listen to vibrant and pertinent speakers, and connect with other St. Leonard parish parents.
