“And people were bringing children to him that he might touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this he became indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not prevent them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”
Welcome! we are happy that you want to know more about our Faith Formation Ministry. Here at Catholic Communities of Brawley & Westmorland (CCBW), we strive to be companions of journey of faith to our parents and children who attend our catechism classes. Together, we will explore our catholic faith, learn about the sacraments, learn about the life and teachings of Jesus thru Scripture and celebrate the life of the Church throughout the liturgical year.
Registration for the 2018-2019 Catechetical year will begin soon.
1st -5th Gatherings
Catechesis for this age level is based on the 4 pillars of our faith: Creed, Sacraments, Moral life and prayer and adapted to their age level. It is usually with in this age level that children are prepared to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion for the first time.
Jr Youth Gatherings – 6th-8th
In our Jr. Youth gatherings, we set the foundation to make Disciples of Jesus amongst our young people. We journey with them as they develop a close relationship with our Creator. In God's timing, not ours, they will have an encounter with Jesus who is the Source and Summit of our being.
Our Youth ministry includes a two-year preparation program for the Sacrament of Confirmation and the YDisciple program for Teens who have already received Confirmation and wish to continue to grow closer to God.
We invite our Jr. High and High School Teens to come to our Summer Nights for praise and worship, Bible Study, Games, Snacks and much more:
June 20th – July 26th
Sacred Heart Parish Hall
Parents are truly the primary educators of faith. For this reason, it is very important to work together with parents to form disciples. Our Family Catechesis Nights are opportunities to help parents catechize their children directly, for spouses to catechize each other, and for children to catechize one another.
