Youth Faith Formation: Grades 1st to 8th & 1st Holy Communion

The Evangelization Outreach Program at Our Lady of Grace offers religious instruction and Faith Formation for students in 1st through 8th grade & bilingual assistance. We also offer classes in preparation for the Sacrament of 1st Holy Communion (2nd Grade).

Registration Fees for 2021-2022

  • $120 for the 1st child
  • $60 each for additional child in the same household

Registration has been extended to October 1st. After October 1st, there will be a $20 late fee.

We encourage you to register your child early so that we may plan accordingly. Children will be placed in classes on a first-come, first-served basis.

** Whole Family Catechesis: English / Bilingual, Grades 1st – 8th Grade: Classes for parents & their child are held once or twice of each month on Sundays. This year, we have divided this class into 2 groups: “Whole Family Pre-1st Communion” (Children who have not received the Sacrament) and “Whole Family Post-Communion” (Children who have received the Sacrament). Please click below for the appropriate Class Schedule:

** 1st Holy Communion (2nd Grade): Classes for parents & their child are held on the 1st & 3rd Sundays of each month.  Your child should have completed one year of Faith Formation at Our Lady of Grace or at another parish and be entering 2nd grade.

 We, the Catholic community of Our Lady of Grace, endeavor to live our faith grounded in Jesus Christ, celebrating His presence in Word, Sacrament and shared experiences.”

Passing on your faith is one of the most precious gifts you can give your children. We are here to help you!
