Faith Formation Commission (FFC)

Advent Celebration

Parish members celebrate the beginning of Advent with special planned family events.
 

Annulment Advocacy

Divorce and remarriage are pastoral concerns of the Catholic Church. St. Pius X Annulment Representatives are prepared to assist individuals who wish to submit an application and petition for obtaining an annulment from a previous marriage. Divorced Catholics who have remarried or wish to remarry and Catholics who have not been married but wish to marry a divorced person can contact St. Pius X for annulment advocacy assistance.
 

Catholic Inquiry

We invite anyone who is interested in the Catholic Faith or in becoming Catholic to join a “Catholic Inquiry.” This is an opportunity to learn about and discuss our faith, and for those who wish to celebrate initiation into the Church.

 

Confirmation

Confirmation preparation is offered to parishioners who are in high school or older. Preparation includes faith formation, Scripture, liturgy and worship, parish involvement and retreats. The classes typically begin in January. 
 

Infant Baptism Preparation

This ministry supports parents seeking initiation of their child into the Catholic Church. The preparation team guides the parents in the basic understanding of this sacrament including history, symbols and the responsibility of raising the child in the faith.

Pre-Marriage / Wedding Program

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding. If you are engaged, the team will answer your questions about classes and counseling, scheduling the church and planning the ceremony.

 

Returning Catholics (Landings)

Would you like to investigate returning to the Sacraments? St. Pius X extends an invitation to non-practicing Catholics to renew their faith. “Landings” is an opportunity to share faith stories and to talk about the Church with other Catholics and returning Catholics

 

Rites of Christian Initiation of Children (RCIC)

For older students (4th—8th grade) who have not yet received the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist, we offer a special program of preparation. Students enroll in an age-appropriate elementary or middle school program. Throughout the year we provide special activities designed to focus on the sacraments. Reconciliation takes place in winter and Eucharist is celebrated in the spring.

 

Sacramental Preparation – First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion

These are classes for children in grades 2-3 to prepare for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. The process includes formation through instruction, prayer, Scripture, service, liturgy, crafts and activities and worship, culminating in the reception of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist.
