Youth Faith Formation Programs
Catholic Faith Formation Classes (CFF)
The ministry of Religious Education classes for students who attend public school is held one Saturday per month (generally the 2nd) for grades K-8. We begin at 9:00am and end at 12:00pm in the Day Activity Center. This is a family oriented program where we learn about the Bible and the doctrine of the Catholic faith, enabling parents to form their child in the Catholic Faith.
Calendars and registration forms may be found on the FORMS page. Look for Religious Education and click on either schedule or registration forms. For more information, you may also contact Theresa Shaw at 944-8283 x5 or [email protected].
Holy Family Youth Ministry is centered on Christ and allows students to explore faith and life. Days full of fun, friends, food, prayer, service, and more are what we do best! Middle (6th-8th) and high (9th-12th) school groups gather for a variety of events each month with our youth minister Abbi Hamm.
Vacation Bible School
Holy Family is currently utilizing the Totus Tuus (Latin for "Totally Yours", the motto of St. Pope John Paul II) program offered by the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, in conjunction with St. Anthony's, OLPH, and St. Mary's, New Albany. Your child will be enthralled with learning about the Catholic faith, games, skits, and other activities! The Totus Tuus team presenting the program are all college-age students in love with their Catholic faith.
There are daytime sessions (9:30am-2:30pm M-F) for grades 1-6 and evening sessions (7:00pm-9:00pm S-Th) for Jr. and Sr. High students.
The program will rotate parishes each year. Since we are beholden to the Archdiocese for scheduling, the dates may change each year, but our goal is to hold it in June. Please watch the bulletin and parish emails for information on site and date each year.
RCIA Adapted for Children (Rite of Christian Initiation Adapted for Children)
Normally the children of Catholic parents are baptized as infants, but this is not always the case. The RCIA Adapted for Children process is for children, ages 7 and up, who have not received Baptism or First Communion to receive extra Sacramental Preparation in anticipation of receiving these sacraments.
