Children's Faith Formation

Kindergarten - 8th grade

It is our sincere conviction that the real aim of catechesis is to bring each child into intimate communion with Jesus Christ. We are dedicated not only to teaching the Catholic Faith that comes to us from the Apostles, but to helping to form disciples of Jesus Christ and to aid them in discovering the purpose of their life: to know, love and serve God in this world so as to be happy with Him in the next.

 

The Children's Faith Formation (CFF) Program provides a comprehensive program of religious formation for children, Kindergarten through 8th grade. Sessions are held at St. Bede Catholic Church, in our newly built Parish Ministry level, on Sunday mornings September through May. See Resources in the sidebar to the right for enrollment forms. You may also find them at the Information Desk in the church Commons.

 

 

 

We are pleased to announce that VBS 2017 will be held from June 26-30, 2017. The theme this summer is "HERO CENTRAL - Discover your strength in God"! Registrations forms will be available on the website and in the church commons, at the information desk, starting Sunday, April 23, 2017. As always, we are looking forward to another wonderful week of VBS, at Williamsburg Presbyterian Church. We also look forward to the many wonderful people that volunteer to make this week such a success!

 


The foundation of our program is people.  The Children's Faith Formation Program cannot happen without the stewardship gifts of time and talent so generously provided by our Formation Team members, many of whom are parents. With almost 400 students in our program, the participation of parents is essential to making your child’s experience the best that it can be!

If you choose to homeschool your child for their weekly faith formation, please contact our Children's Faith Formation office, so that we may have an accurate record of all children in Saint Bede parish who are receiving faith formation.  If you homeschool, and your child has been baptized, is at least 7 years of age, and is ready to prepare to receive their First Reconciliation & First Holy Communion, please visit our Sacramental Preparation Program page for more information.
