St Monica Catholic Church has a unique Faith Formation (RE) / Discipleship Program. If the guiding principle of our lives is "What would Jesus do, or say, or decide in this situation," we must know Him through the Scriptures to answer these questions for ourselves. We want our children and all our parishioners to LIVE the GOOD NEWS!
Sundays or Wednesdays, for students 4 years-12th grade. At each grade level, certain prayers and sacramentals are also taught. Preparation for First Reconciliation takes place in the fall of the 2nd grade year. The children prepare for First Holy Communion during the spring of their 2nd grade year.
- Parish Office at 359-2700

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Children (RCIC) is for unbaptized children from 4th grade to about 15 years old. They are prepared for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist. They join the Church at Easter Vigil. They then join the appropriate program.
Kindergarten students meet on Sundays between Masses.
1st-6th Grade meet on Sundays or Wednesdays

Grade 10 or Confirmation II (and any non-confirmed 11th-12th grader)
Preparation for Confirmation is a two-year program. (30 service hours of helping at our parish or in the community are required).
Classes meet on Wednesdays from 7-8:30 p.m. Confirmation will be held Thursday,
May 4, 2017, at 7 p.m.
Confirmation II is a course on Catholic morals and ethics.
Meets Wednesday, 7-8:30 p.m. 11th and 12th Graders are encouraged to be active in the church and community. We also ask them to continue to meet as a junior/senior class on Wednesday evenings for Bible Study — discussing the upcoming weekend's readings, applying the Scriptures to their lives, and learning about apologetics (how to defend their faith).
NET Retreat (Grades 7-12)
In the spring of each year, the National Evangelization Team (NET) comes to our parish to do a day-long Saturday retreat.
Youth and Family Nights (Grades 7-12)
Three to four times a year, on Wednesday evenings, instead of class, an event for these students and their families takes place sometimes beginning with a potluck supper at 6:15 p.m. and a program at 7 p.m. Often, national speakers are brought in for these events.
Because we are a stewardship parish, there is no charge for any of the above programs for registered members of the parish. If a student's parents are not registered, there is a $50 fee per child per year for materials.
