Upcoming Faith Formation Events…

We invite everyone to join us as Sacred Heart of Jesus Church celebrates the Feast of Corpus Christi on June 2nd at 11:30 am.  Following the 11:30 am Mass join the parish for a procession of the Holy Eucharist around the property of our Church, Convent, and Academy grounds as we ask for our Lord’s blessing on the four corners of our Parish. The procession will conclude in the Sacred Heart Garden with Benediction.   We extend a special invitation to the children who received their First Holy Communion this year.  They are welcome to wear their First Communion clothes and walk together directly behind the Blessed Sacrament! 

Reminders…    

Grade/Level 7 to receive a Confirmation interview, students must have submitted their Saint Report, Letter to the Pastor and complete their MCFD coursework which should now be submitted and/or completed.  Service journals may be brought to the confirmation interview if they have not already been submitted to the Faith Formation Office.  All students must be registered into the Year 2 sacrament preparation class by June 30th in order to continue their journey towards the Sacrament of Confirmation during the 2024-25 school year.  Please contact the Faith Formation office if you have any questions.
