CHILDREN’S FAITH FORMATION INFORMATION

 

IMPORTANT PARENT ANNOUNCEMENTS

 MASS REFLECTIONS WERE DUE ON MARCH 5. 

MASS RELECTIONS ARE PART OF THE REQUIREMENTS NEEDED TO MOVE TO THE NEXT LEVEL.

* * * * * * * * * * 

As we end our 2017-18 Faith Formation Year, we thank all our catechists, classroom helpers, aides and hall helpers for their unselfish help this year. We wish you all a wonderful restful summer until we all return again.

 This coming Faith Formation Year we will continue using the Gospel Weeklies for all levels except Level 2 who continues using the new "Go, Seek, Find" program to prepare for their First Communion next spring.

* * * * * * * * * * 

We appreciate the willingness of our catechists, hall helpers and classroom aides who help us support parents in the vital responsibility of passing on our faith to God's little ones.

* * * * * * * * * *

We invite you to pray and think about being involved next fall in our Faith Formation Program. We will need catechists and classroom aides in various levels. This would be a weekly commitment, adults over 18 must attend a VIRTUS class, a 2-hour information session on "Protection for All God's Children."  It is a rewarding way to be involved in our program; your children will be glad you helped and you will too!

IN ADDITION, WE ALWAYS NEED HALL HELPERS. 

High School Students: Being a hall helper or classroom aide is a great way to get community service hours in high school. We welcome all students who would enjoy helping young ones stay safe while learning about God and our faith.

Hall helpers (teen or adults) assist us by being in the hallways during classtime, escorting students to the rest rooms, assisting teachers in getting supplies, etc. Adults who are in the building to drop their children off at classes are often willing to help out during the hour of class time by being hall helpers or aides in the classrooms. Please consider this needed service for your children in our program.

NOTE: All (over age 18) who are involved with the children in any capacity are required to attend a VIRTUS 2-hour course, for the protection and safety of our children. You must be registered online before attending the course.  Go to www.virtusonline.org and sign up for an upcoming class. When you attend, be sure to get a certificate of completion. We will keep this on file at CTK Parish.

YOU MUST REGISTER ONLINE AT: www.virtus.org - PRIOR TO  YOUR VIRTUS SESSION. THANK YOU.

LEVEL 1 News

Those children who were baptized here at Christ the King Parish should receive a new registration letter in May. Those who were baptized in other parishes should come to our office when registration time occurs, first week in May. Bring your child's baptismal certificate with you when you come to register.

Level 2 News

Parents will receive a Constant Contact text message reminder before Communion rehearsal. Parents did receive the rehearsal dates at the Level 2 Parents Meeting in January. At that time, parents received the First Communion Date and rehearsal time and place. If you made any change in the original Communion day or time, the rehearsal date and time changed as well.

If you are in doubt, call the office at 621-864-3696

Monday through Thursday, 10AM - noon and 1PM - 4PM.

Level 3-7 News

Students have already received Reconciliation. If you did not celebrate the Sacrament, please go to church on a Saturday during regular Confession hours and bring an index card to the priest with your name, class and catechist name for our records.

Level 8 News

Confirmation Final Preparation has begun for our Level 8 students. Reconciliation for these students will be a part of their required Confirmation Retreat in April. Retreat dates and times have been sent home. Attendance at the retreat is a MUST for reception of Confirmation.

God bless these students and their families.
