School of Faith & Domestic Church Catechism

The Sacred Heart Parish School of Faith is committed to nurture the development of Christian faith of all ages. Children and adult students (RCIA) are offered rich opportunities to get closer to God and deepen their spiritual lives, both as individuals and as Domestic Church families. The School of Faith is for all children/students and adults in need of preparation to receive the sacraments of First Penance, First Communion, and Confirmation. Parents are encouraged to teach their children at home. The Domestic Church participants receive support, teaching materials, and training throughout the year. 

Domestic Church Catechism 

Parents can teach the faith to their children  at home. They must be certified by having attended all the required courses. They must have completed Adult Catechism-Level One and register their children at the parish. Curriculum will be provided along with the teaching materials needed.

Holy Spirit Mass

Prayers for a successful School of Faith Year 

A Holy Spirit Mass was celebrated to start off the new year. All youth enrolled in the School of Faith attended and prayed for God to open their minds and heart to learn more about their Catholic faith this school year. The youth will learn how to use the Bible, the Missal, pray the Liturgy of the Hours and study the Catechism of the Catholic Church along with other curriculum. Father Eduardo celebrated the Mass and asked  the youth to come to Mass on Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. for Vespers and Mass at 6:30 p.m. before  reporting to CCE at 7:00 p.m.  At 8:00 p.m. after CCE, the youth will go back to church to pray the night prayer, Compline.  Attending Mass before going to CCE will be part of the requirements third through 12th grade.
