Special Needs Faith Formation

Special Needs Faith Formation offers families with Special Needs school-age children the opportunity for faith development in a safe, nurturing environment. In a developmentally appropriate way, the children are invited and encouraged to answer the call of Jesus, to learn about His story and to celebrate the Sacraments. A certified Special Education teacher teaches this program and caring catechists with a loving desire to work with this special community provide support and assistance. We strive to provide an inclusive environment, so it is not necessary for the child to have any particular special needs to participate.

 

Please contact Rita Cabello at 210-494-1606 ext #320, rcabello@stmarkevangelist.com for more information, to set up a time to visit the class or to discuss the needs of your child.
 

To provide the needed consistency for our Special Needs children, this program meets every Sunday during the 10 am Mass beginning 1st Sunday of September through Father's Day Sunday of June.

Middle School Faith Formation

Our Faith Formation classes are designed to offer students insights into their own faith life, to show them that being Catholic is a full-time commitment, and to help them live out Christian values in their everyday lives. As Catholics, we baptized our children into a faith-filled community and made a solemn promise to raise them in the Catholic Church. It is the responsibility of the parents to see that their children, not only attend weekly Mass but that they also receive an education in the Catholic Faith. However, Faith Formation goes beyond those two requirements. Faith Formation is an intentional action that is integrated into the life of a family to include the development of the whole person.  To register your student in our Middle School Faith Formation Program fill out the online registration form HERE.
