 Faith Formation for the Catholic Community of Jeannette

Faith Formation for children of Sacred Heart and Ascension Parishes in kindergarten through fifth grade will gather on the first Wednesday of the month at Sacred Heart Church and School. The evening begins at 6:30 PM and concludes at 8:00 PM. Parents/guardians are asked to bring their child/children into church and stop at the registration table for monthly check in. 

The evening begins in church with a gathering, opening prayer, and introduction to the monthly theme. Children will then be dismissed by grade for their age-appropriate formation for the evening. Everyone will return to the church for closing prayer and dismissal. Parents/guardians are invited to reconnect with their children beginning at 7:45 PM in the church prior to dismissal.

Session specific details are found below.
