We have class offerings for both children and adults alike! These programs will run on Sunday mornings, starting in November 2022, at the St. Anthony’s campus. 

September 2022 

Greetings Friends in Christ, 

We have been busily working on our Faith Formation program for the upcoming year for our youth and adults.  We’re hoping this helps you and your children develop better personal relationships with Christ and your Catholic faith.   

The weekly, in-person program will start on Sunday, November 6, 2022 for our children and for our adults.  Thanks to a generous donation from a parishioner, some wonderful changes will be occurring in the Faith Formation building prior to the start of the program! 

The anticipated schedule each week will be: 

9:00-10:15am     Each group participates in their appropriate sessions starting promptly at 9am. 
10:15-10:30am   Parents collect their children from the Faith Formation building. 
10:30am             Mass at St. Anthony Church. We encourage families to attend 10:30am Mass together.  

The one-page Faith Formation calendar is available to you by clicking on the box on the right.  Please print it out for easy reference. 

Registration for Faith Formation is available via the online form. The completed form must be submitted by September 30.  Participating in Faith Formation is free, however as in the past, there is a suggested donation with registration.  Any amount is always appreciated. 

A description of the Children’s Faith Formation groupings can be found here.  These are the same as last year.    

VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION/CHANGES regarding Junior High and Confirmation preparation can be seen here.  

Descriptions of the programs and materials being used this year are available here.   

We are always in need of teachers for the children and adult programs. Please prayerfully consider sharing your faith with others. You don’t have to be a theologian or scholar! Being enthusiastic to share your faith is a big part of it.  If you have any questions or wish to be on the Faith Formation teaching team, please contact Marianne Cooper soon at faithformation [at] or call her at 978-772-0727.  Be good to each other and take care of each other. 

Sincerely in Christ, 

Father D                              Marianne Cooper, Faith Formation Coordinator
