Prayers and Teachings

All students should work on learning Prayers and Teachings of the Catholic Church at home.  They may then recite them at the Prayer Station to earn faith-focused prizes or to earn coins for our "Prayers for the Poor" collection.  Here's a link to the Prayers and Teachings.

Confirmation

In our parish, students attend monthly Confirmation classes taught by Fr. Bruce beginning in the fall of their 9th grade year (or older) with the Confirmation Mass being celebrated in October of the following year.  The Confirmation Mass for those currently in classes is scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 14, 2018, at 2:00 PM.  A link to the class calendar is above under "Calendars".  The study guide and tests are below:

Faith Formation Volunteer training and background check forms

All volunteers who work with children and youth must be trained by reading the Diocese of Bismarck Code of Conduct and then must submit a signed Acknowledgement Form.

You will find them on the diocesan website at these links:

- Diocese of Bismarck Code of Conduct (please read this)
- Acknowledgement Form (please sign and return this to the parish or Faith Formation office)

All volunteers over age 18 must also allow for a background check to be requested. This requires the completion of two forms. Please return the completed forms to the parish or Faith Formation office.

- This page is for your information only and does not need to be returned to the parish

 

Thank you for your commitment to the children of our parish.
