Faith Formation is more than Classroom Learning
Our scholars learn about faith in Jesus through classroom instruction, weekly mass and monthly recitation of the rosary. Scholars pray daily and learn the significance of celebrating the liturgical year with saint day celebrations, Advent prayer services, Stations of the Cross during Lent, Easter treats, and Marian celebrations.
In addition, our host parish Holy Cross offers sacramental preparation and religious education.
All are invited to join our scholars and staff at mass on Thursdays at 8:45 AM in the church of the Holy Cross, University Ave and 17th Ave. NE. The scholars fulfill the roles of lector, cantors, and prayer leaders while our chaplains Fr. Spenser Howe, pastor of Holy Cross and Fr. Kevin Finnegan, pastor of Our Lady of Grace parish in Edina, celebrate the Eucharist.
All scholars come together to pray the rosary on one Monday a month. Each middle schooler takes a kindergartener under his or her wing and teaches them how to respect the rosary, what to say and how to act during the prayer. Classes take turns leading a decade. All are welcome to join us for this monthly prayer to the Virgin Mary.
We Offer First Communion Prep to our 2nd Graders
Sacraments and Religious Education at Holy Cross
For students who are not in 2nd grade but are seeking First Communion, children who are seeking baptism, and middle schoolers who are seeking Confirmation, we have a wonderful partner with Holy Cross Church.
The church offers a beautiful religious education program on Wednesday nights in Spanish for parents and in English for children.
