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.

What is Domestic Church?

FAMILY: The family is the Domestic Church. This means that it is in the context of the family that we first learn who God is and to prayerfully seek His will for us.

At Sacred Heart we offer parent the opportunity to prepare themselves to teach the faith at home and be the primary catechists to their children. Through the classes in the Parish Institute parents can grow in the knowledge of their faith.

We also offer the opportunity for Parents or Grandparents to teach CCE at home through our Domestic Church Catechism Process.

If your child is unable to attend catechism classes at our parish due to time conflicts or other issues, Children can receive the catechetical formation at home.

If you are interested in getting more information or teaching CCE for your children at home please call or come by the CCE Office 956-565-0271.
