Youth Faith Formation (Religious Education/CCD)

Faith Formation for Youth

Susan Doyle, Director of Religious Education      

Looking for information on Confirmation of youth this fall? Go HERE.

Registration for the 2020-21 program year is OPEN!

We are offering in-person faith formation on Wednesdays and Sundays, with an option for synchronous virtual formation.  Please read all the info below before completing a Google Form registration.

For information on Homeschooling Religious Ed, please click HERE.

We must give priority for in-person/virtual to families who live within parish boundaries and are registered.  If you know that you are not registered, and you live within parish boundaries, please complete the online parish registration form and submit to the parish office.

Religious education is offered on Sundays, 10:30-11:45 (English) & 12:30-1:45 pm (Spanish), as well as on Wednesdays, 7:00-8:15 pm.  Our text series pairs with a digital app, so if we must all revert to virtual, formation can continue seamlessly.

A COVID waiver (e.g. parents accept risk of in-person classes) and a transfer of health screening responsibility (e.g. parents will do health screenings at home and not bring children if they have any symptoms of COVID) will be posted shortly and sent to those who have registered.

We need volunteers for a variety of roles, from teaching, to assisting with drop off and pick up, to monitoring halls.  Our doors cannot open without the help!  Please contact Susan Doyle sdoyle(at)bscva.org or call the parish office if you can help.
