Ice Cream Social

Please join the St. Anselm Community on June 10 at 6:30 pm in the Church Hall for an Ice Cream Social celebrating our Youth Ministry!  

Current and former Faith Formation students, retreat participants, parents, siblings, friends and neighbors- everyone is welcome to gather in community, make their own ice cream sundaes and celebrate our youth!

Information and registration for next year’s Youth Ministry will also be available.  St. Anselm offers Faith Formation classes, Confirmation for 8th graders and opportunities for service, social events and Catholic College resources for high school students!

We look forward to seeing you there!

The St. Anselm Faith Formation Team


Our Mission

Faith Formation at St. Anselm’s employs a multi-age model of instruction to foster community, role modeling and a safe space where children can grow in their faith and in their relationship with God.  Using a child-centered approach, we encourage children and young adults to encounter their faith through a variety of activities: engagement with Biblical stories and the Sacraments through the creative arts for the youngest, “faith in action” instruction for elementary/middle schoolers and reflective Confirmation preparation for high schoolers.


SACRAMENT PREPARATION

FIRST COMMUNION

The Eucharist is the source and summit of Christian life. When we receive the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, we deepen our communion with God and our fellowship with each another. To prepare for First Communion, your child must be enrolled for 2nd Grade.

RECONCILIATION

The sacrament of Reconciliation is about mercy – the mercy of Jesus Christ. Confessing our sins reconciles us to God and restores us to his grace and deep friendship. Confession breaks the power of shame and the hurt of sin, and restores us within the community of faith.

CONFIRMATION

In Confirmation we receive the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and the deepening of baptismal grace, enabling us to grow as mature disciples of Christ. St. Anselm’s confirmation program is a 2-year program, in 9th and 10th grades.

If you are an adult seeking to receive Baptism, First Communion, or thinking about becoming Catholic, please contact us – we would love to welcome you and help you take the next step!

ADULT FAITH FORMATION

Anyone wishing to deepen their understanding of the faith is welcomed & encouraged to participate in one of our learning opportunities for people of all ages – including online courses, retreats, book clubs, service opportunities, and more.
