Faith Formation

What is faith formation?


Catholic Faith Formation consists of all religious education offerings available to children and adults to help them grow in their love and understanding of Gods plan for their lives.

The Church’s catechetical mission aims to help the faithful of all ages to grow in both human and Christian maturity, enriching the whole of life with the leaven of the Gospel. 

religious education

St. Rose Religious Education is a faith formation program adapted to the spiritual needs of children attending public school in 1st grade through 8th grade. In addition, we offer sacrament preparation for all students who have not yet received the sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation or First Eucharist. There is a staff of over 18 trained catechists who are willing to volunteer their time and talent on the behalf of the religious education of the children of our parish.

Please stop by the Parish Office to pick up registration forms. Please submit payment here.

We look forward to having your student in our program.

High School Confirmation

The Rite of Confirmation completes the Sacraments of Initiation and brings members into fuller communion with the faith through formal assent given as adults. For baptized Catholics, confirmation is most commonly received during high school.

For registration into the High School Confirmation Program, please have a copy of your students Baptism & First Communion certificates to attach to the online registration form. Registration forms can be picked up at the Parish Office and  MUST be submitted for complete registration into the Confirmation program, and payment may be submitted here.
