Grades 1st - 7th

Our Mission is to create an environment where families and children feel safe and accompany them on their journey to be closer to Jesus Christ and God.

Our Focus is on our Head, Heart and Hands:  

We want your child to have the knowledge of our faith (Head), to strengthen their relationship with God aka Discipleship (Heart) and to serve within our families, our community and beyond (Hands)

Registration FAQ's

Baptismal Certificate

Baptism Certificates are required for children new to the program and for all first graders, unless baptized at Little Flower.  You will be asked to upload a copy of your child's baptismal certificate when you register. If you don't have your child's certificate or cannot upload it, contact the religious formation office at the parish center for help.

Parish Membership

We want your family to be an active part of the Little Flower community. We ask that before you sign up for our program, you are a parishioner of the Church of the Little Flower. Click here to become a parishioner.

Additional Fees

There is a First Communion Sacramental preparation fee of $185 due at First Communion registration in January to defray the cost of materials and the retreat.

Photo Release

We love to highlight our religious formation families on social media. At registration you can choose to opt in or out of these social media posts.

Mass Requirements

Religious Formation families are asked to attend a monthly family Mass. (Schedule here)

These Masses are geared towards families with children in our program.

Attendance

Our program requires 75% attendance. Exceptions may be made at the discretion of the Pastor.

Lenten, Advent and End of Year Family Sessions 

Families attend three required sessions a year at Advent, Lent and at the end of the Religious Formation year. Other opportunities for families to worship together are available throughout the year, but are not required.

Empowering God's Children

Parents present a safety lesson to their children that includes a grade-appropriate video component along with a hands-on activity. We are required by the Archdiocese to receive a response for each student registered in our program. Upon completion parents will sign the Parent/Guardian Acknowledgement; or the Parent/Guardian Selection if they choose not to participate. Download here.
