Parish Youth Faith Formation Calendar

Every parish shall ensure faith formation for youth who do not attend a Catholic school.  Parish Youth Faith Formation (Parish School of Religion) is to include a minimum of thirty (30) instructional/formative hours per program year.

The particular format and schedule shall be determined on the parish level.

Parishes with fewer than fifty (50) youth (K-12) are strongly encouraged to cluster with neighboring parishes to provide effective and vibrant youth faith formation.
