  • Faith Formation News
    Religious Education Classes for Fall 2014 - Registration for children 4 years of age thru 6th grade has begun for fall classes… At Baptism, part of the rite addressed to the parents says, “You have asked to have your child baptized. In doing so you are accepting the responsibility of training them in the practice of the faith.” Canon Law states that parents are the prime educators of their children. If your child is not attending Catholic school, you have the obligation of educating them in the faith either by a home study or enrolling them in Religious Education classes. Remember that these classes are not just for children preparing to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist. Our faith and understanding of God continues to grow in us for a lifetime.
    Please register your children in the Faith Formation office, Monday thru Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Registration is $60 per child. Classes will begin Sunday, September 21st, at 11:15 a.m. after the 10:00 a.m. Mass. To register or for more information, contact Kathy Lewis in the Office for Faith Formation at 949-574-7400 Ext. 321 or e-mail at klewis@saintjoachimcostamesa.org.
    Blessing for College Students - There will be a special blessing for all college students on Sunday, August 10th, at the 10:00 a.m., 12:00 noon and 5:00 p.m. Masses. All who will be attending college this fall whether nearby or far away, please stand when the presider invites you to do so, so we can all extend our arms in blessing you as you move on to the next step of your lives!
