Kindergarten through Seventh Graders are invited to join us for faith formation classes at Resurrection Parish. Classes are held Tuesdays from 6:30- 7:45 p.m. and begin September 19th, 2023. Small class sizes and engaging discussions will help foster your child's faith, wherever they are on their journey. We encourage in-person attendance since so much of our faith experience is best experienced in community, but we also offer at-home options if you have a schedule conflicts on Tuesdays.

1st Reconciliation and 1st Communion are traditionally celebrated in second grade at Resurrection but we welcome older children as well. Preparations for 1st Reconciliation begin Tuesday, September 12th, 2023 and the children will receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation on Tuesday, November 28th beginning at 6:30 p.m. 1st Communion preparations begin Tuesday, January 9th and children will receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion the weekend of April 20th/21st, 2024. Public School children attend Tuesday evening classes to prepare for these sacraments. Catholic School families may prepare for these sacraments at-home or are welcomed to attend the Tuesday evening classes if space allows. Please contact [email protected] to inquire about availability. Both public and Catholic School families are asked to attend several parent and child gatherings to prepare for these Sacraments throughout the year.

Confirmation: Confirmation is a year long preparation and we welcome those who are receptive to receiving this Sacrament (typically those who are in 7th and 8th grade and high schoolers). Classes will meet approximately two times a month on Sundays, beginning September 17th. Our program includes engaging presentations, small group discussions led by high school mentors, prayer and retreat experiences, and meaningful communiity outreach/service projects.

Please note: The Archdiocese of Detroit requires two years of faith formation for children receiving sacraments. (This means they should be in some form of faith formation classes or at a Catholic School for at least one year prior to beginning Sacramental preparations like Confirmation, 1st Reconciliation, or 1st Communion.) Feel free to reach out to [email protected] with questions.
Baptism and Sacramental Preparations for Older Children: If you have an older child who has not recieved baptism or other sacraments, we would love to work with you to welcome your child and your family more fully into the life of the Church. Please reach out to Karen at [email protected] so we can tailor a faith formation experience that is right for your family!
We hope we can partner together to help your child(ren) grow in their relationship with God and their understanding of their faith.
