Family Catechesis & Sacramental Prep


St. Jane youth faith formation follows the Family Catechesis model. This program is conducted under the supervision of the Office of Religious Education to fulfill the requirements for ongoing faith formation. Sacramental preparation classes for First Communion and Confirmation are conducted separately, in addition to Family Catechesis. Click here to review the Faith Formation Handbook.

 Family Catechesis

Family Catechesis is open to grades K-12 and consists of two options: a hybrid program and a home-based program. The hybrid program (limited enrollment) consists of one parent meeting & student class a month, one lesson at home a month, and one family fellowship gathering a month. The home-based program consists of one parent meeting a month, two lessons at home a month, and one family fellowship gathering a month. Parents receive a parent guide and each student receives a student activity book. Register here for Family Catechesis. Click here for the Family Catechesis Calendar (both programs).
