Saint Anne's Faith Formation Program fosters the spiritual, emotional and personal growth of families and children in our Parish community. The program’s purpose is to provide a supportive, nurturing environment where young people and their parents can grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. The program supports parents as the primary educators of their children in the faith.

The focus of the program is three-fold: instruction in the faith, practice of the faith through liturgies, and service.

Opportunities for students and parents to worship together are provided through Class Masses and encouragement of attendance at Sunday and Holy Day Masses. Age appropriate service initiatives are introduced to classes in the earlier grades. The older students are encouraged to look around their communities and see and fill needs, thus developing a life-long attitude of giving. Instruction is provided by volunteer catechists who share their faith with the children. Making use of texts are approved by the Diocese of Rockville Centre.

Classes for children in grades 1 through 8 are provided. Students in grades 1 through 6 may presently register for a class of one hour and ten minutes on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday afternoons (4 to 5:10 PM) or on Sunday mornings (9 AM to 10:15 AM). Seventh and eighth grade students meet on Wednesday evenings from 7 to 8:30 PM approximately twice a month, and also for specially scheduled presentations. A calendar is provided in advance to assist parents in planning.

In addition, a program for children who have special needs is provided on Sunday mornings from 8:30 to 9:15AM. Instruction in a one-on-one setting is adapted to meet the needs and goals of each child.

Please read the letter from Fr. Tom and Vivian Flood on the Parent Information page regarding the program for 2021-2022.
