First Holy Communion or First Eucharist is one of the three Sacraments of Initiation. It is the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ Himself, the food in our journey of faith. We, in the community of Saint Joseph, are happy that you have chosen our Parish to guide you in your child’s sacramental journey.
Welcome to St. Joseph Parish! We appreciate your interest in enrolling to our Religious Education Program. Due to COVID-19, we will be having our Catechism classes through video conference. We will call this session School of Faith at Home.
Adapting to new times and our new reality, but above all, making God present, parents are the witnesses of the Faith in our daily life and our family. Our goal is to assist you in helping your children grow in our Faith. The children will realize that Jesus Christ is present in God’s word, in the Mass, in the Eucharist, and the church community.
The Vision of this Virtual Session School of Faith at Home is to create a commitment and cohesion as a working team; between the Parents and the Church (Pastor, Associate Pastors, and Coordinators of Religious Education) and Catechists.
Objective: Teach and share with parents the fundamentals of our Catholic faith. So that through their commitment, they can share their gift of faith as a family.
