Youth Faith Formation

Kindergarten – 8th Religious Education

The Religious Education program at Our Lady of Fatima is for students Kindergarten through 8th grade.  We closely follow the public school calendar, beginning early in September and ending in early May.  All classes are held on Wednesday evenings.  To strengthen our belief that the Eucharist is the source and summit of our faith, we typically begin with a family Mass at 5:30 followed by dinner at 6:00.  Classes begin at 6:30 and last one hour.

Preparation to Receive Sacraments

First Reconciliation (Confession) and First Holy Eucharist are typically received following preparation which begins in the fall of the second grade. 

Confirmation preparation begins in the fall of the seventh grade.  First Reconciliation is celebrated in mid December; First Holy Eucharist and Confirmation take place in the Spring.  For various reasons some children miss out on receiving these Sacraments at the traditional age.  

Arrangements can be made to prepare older children by contacting Carol O’Hearn in the Religious Education Office.

High School Youth Group

The Our Lady of Fatima youth group is for high schoolers ages 14-18. We focus on faith, fellowship, and formation. We meet Wednesday nights 6:30 to 8:30 at the Parish Center after the 5:30 Mass and 6:00 dinner.

We love making new friends and forming a strong community. For more information please contact Aaron O’Hearn at
