Welcome to St. Joseph Faith Formation

Our Faith Formation program is family based, meaning that we strive to assist the entire family unit to grow in faith.  We hope to achieve this through a united effort of both parent teaching and catechist teaching. 

All families must register with the parish before registering for Faith Formation classes. You can do this online at our parish website- stjosephronkonkoma.org.  Click “I’m New” and complete the registration form. After you receive an email with your new family ID number please click the button below to be directed to the New Family Faith Formation Registration form.  After the Faith Formation office has reviewed your submission, you will receive a welcome email from Parish Giving to complete the registration process and submit your payment. 

A summary of the Faith Formation program

  • Parents attend classes with their child 2x’s a month and teach the remaining lessons at home (usually 2 lessons a month). 
  • All families attend a monthly weekend grade level mass. 
  • Sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and Confirmation require a 2-year preparation process.  
  • First Reconciliation (Confession) is celebrated at the completion of the 2 years of classes.
  • First Eucharist (Communion) is celebrated in the fall after 2 years of classes. 
  • Confirmation is celebrated in the spring for children in Grade 8 and above. 
  • If your child has attended classes at another parish, please provide a “Letter of Transfer” from that parish. 
  • If your child has been baptized, provide a copy of the baptismal certificate.
