Level I Faith Formation

Spring Time Means Faith Formation Registration Sign-Up Time

If you have a kindergartener this year, it is time to enroll him/her
in Faith Formation classes.

Formal classes begin in first grade. At Assumption Parish, our first grade and second grade programs take place on Sunday. We begin each session by celebrating the 9:30 mass as a family; we then proceed to share breakfast together, after which we divide into our various classes/groups. Parents and/or guardians must attend each session with their child.

To facilitate this process, we will have an important parent information meeting for incoming Level 1 students on the following dates:

· Saturday, April 14th, at 11:00 a.m. in the parish library

· Tuesday, April 17th, at 10:00 a.m. in the parish library

· Wednesday, April 18th, at 7:00 p.m. in the parish library

You must attend one of the above meetings in order to register your Level 1 child during our regular registration period, May 7th through September 26th. Please call the office at 631-588-6408 to RSVP your participation at one of the meetings listed above.

Diocesan regulations require a two-year preparation for First Communion which we normally celebrate in the spring of second grade. However, we do offer classes for those who have never attended and are above second grade. These classes also take place on Sunday. Registration for all families will take place from May 7th through September 26th. Residence within the parish boundaries is required.

RE-REGISTRATION information for students continuing in the program will be distributed through class to the oldest or only child in the program.
