Catch The Spirit!
As a people of faith, we are called to share the good news of Jesus Christ. Catechesis - teaching the faith - is an essential work of the Church. Beginning in the home and permeating parish life, catechesis attempts to echo the faith in the liturgy, sacraments, words and works. St. Matthew faith formation programs for children and adults present rich opportunities for all parishioners to grow closer to God and deepen their spiritual lives, both on an individual basis and as a community of faith. Programs are offered throughout the year for parishioners of all ages.
Faith Formation Registration
If you have not yet registered for 2013-2014 classes, please come to the Church Office between the hours of 9:00 am and 4:00 pm.
If you have registered, letters will be mailed by August 30 confirming your child’s class day, time and teachers. Classes begin the week of September 8.
If you have a conflict with your schedule, requests for changes must be done in person at the office or by email at email@example.com. We ask that you do not request changes over the phone.
Teachers are still needed for several classes, so please prayerfully consider if God is calling you to be a catechist.
Registration is ongoing. Please stop by the Faith Formation Office Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., to register in person. Bring your completed registration form with your updated family email, medical information, child's new grade and school information. Register with payment by check or cash only. We will not be able to honor the placement of your child with a specific catechist, nor may a catechist request a specific child in their class. We will not be able to honor a request for students to be placed together in a classroom. If you have any questions, please contact Carmen Dominguez at 704-541-8362 x 1.
