First Holy Communion Registration

The policy of The Diocese of St. Petersburg is that children have at least two years of Faith Formation before they receive a sacrament. At St. Catherine of Siena, students typically make First Communion in 2nd grade and Confirmation in 8th grade. Within their second year, they must also attend sacramental prep classes and requires a separate SACRAMENTAL FEE. Sacramental Prep is in addition to Faith Formation classes and will be held on scheduled Saturdays throughout the school year.

If your son/daughter is old enough to begin preparation for First Holy Communion, please fill out the registration forms above for Faith Formation as well as the additional Sacramental Forms belowIf your son or daughter is attending a Catholic School they just need to register for Sacramental Preparation...

Catechists and Assistants needed!

We are looking for energetic and faith-filled parishioners to help share your faith with the parish children in grades K-12.  Catechists are a vital re-enforcement of the Catholic teachings and values being modeled in the home.  Maybe you are called to experience the rewards of being a role model, being an inspiration to the children and being an essential part of faith formation at St. Catherine of Siena. No previous experience necessary.

We are also in need of classroom assistants, set-up and clean-up, food prep, hospitality and more.  Anyone can help even if you don’t want to teach.  Our sessions meet Sundays 10:15am – 11:45am (grades K-5) & 4:00 pm – 5:45pm (6-12 & Adult).

Please contact Mandy Westrich (K-5, Baptism & First Communion) or Sherri Briand (6-12, Confirmation & Adult)
