Faith Formation Registration Form

Beginning August 5th, Faith Formation registration fees can be paid on the WeShare site. Link to WeShare here.

Pre-school/kindergarten

Children meet Sunday mornings during the 9am mass.  Children are dismissed from the church at the beginning of mass and return during the offertory. 

Elementary (grades 1-5) and Middle School (grades 6-8)

Students meet in the parish hall from 10:15-11:15am. 

Reminder: All Children are to be dropped off and picked up in the parish hall.  For safety reasons, children will not be dismissed into the parking lot or allowed to walk to the church without a parent. 

Interested in becoming more involved?  Consider volunteering as catechist or substitute.  We currently are in need of catechists for the 7th and 8th grade students.  Ideally we would like to build a team of about 4 catechists.  No experience is necessary, just a willingness to share your faith with the young people of our parish.  Please contact Michael Smith at (910) 488-1797 or youthminister@seaschurch.net for more information.

Each month, a different grade will participate in a musical session during their regular scheduled Faith Formation Session.  Information about the role of music in the liturgy will be presented, and we also hope to open the door for youth participation in our Youth Choir and other musical events. We hope that you will be present and encourage your child to participate in these special sessions.  Questions can be directed to Jill Austin, Director of Music at: jillaustin@seaschurch.net or 910-366-2634.

The musical training will happen during the regular scheduled FF session, and the designated students will sing a prelude music at the 11:30am Mass that day.  If a young person does not wish to sing before the congregation, it is not mandatory. We will still have the FF session to learn about the ministry of music in the Church.
