Children's Faith Formation

Our Sheboygan North Catholic Parishes offer programs and events for children of all ages to learn the Catholic faith. Our Faith Formation Program also works to prepare students for the reception of the Sacraments: Baptism, Reconciliation, Eucharist, and Confirmation. We invite you to explore each of our programs below and contact us if you are interested in enrolling your child(ren).

Faith Formation Program for 4- and 5-year olds

Children will experience a fun-filled program to begin them on the road to a life of learning about God. They will listen to exciting Bible stories, make fun crafts, watch videos, dramatize the story, or play games related to it. They will also celebrate the feasts and seasons of the Church year with crafts, games, and parties.

Sacramental Preparation Program

Preparation for the Sacrament of Reconciliation (confession) and the Sacrament of Eucharist (First Communion) is a two-year program at our parishes. Year One (first grade) students learn about God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, about loving God and one another, the Church seasons, and different ways to pray. Year two (second grade) is spent on learning about and preparing for the sacraments. If your student is older than second grade and hasn’t received the sacraments, contact us when registering so we can help them prepare.

Classes for third through sixth grades

Students continue to learn and grow in their faith. Each year, while they continue to learn about basic church teachings, the sacraments, morality, and prayer, they will also explore an additional topic in greater detail. In third grade they learn the Creed, Commandments in fourth grade, sacraments in fifth grade, and Old Testament stories in sixth grade.

The Edge

This is a Catholic youth ministry for seventh and eighth graders. Using an interactive, non-classroom format, The Edge is a relational model of catechesis and evangelization. The Edge relies on a core team comprising of caring adults and teen volunteers that serve as small group leaders.
