Faith Formation

The Faith Formation program at Saint Hedwig is dedicated to serving not just the youth of our parish but the families who call this place home. We do this through several different branches of our program including our School of Religious Education (SRE) for 1st-8th grade, our Edge Program for middle school students, our 2-year Confirmation program starting in 9th grade, and our Youth Ministry program for all high school students.

While we have many programs for students we also take very serious our role in supporting the faith life of your entire family. If you need tools, resources, or just want to talk about ways to lead your family closer to Christ don’t hesitate to call, email, or just stop by. You will always find a warm welcome at St Hedwig.

Faith Formation Volunteers

We are always looking for both adult and teen volunteers to help with the SRE and Confirmation programs. Volunteers are needed as teachers, aides, and office support. You don’t have to have a child in our program to volunteer. We do ask that you have a willingness to share your faith and an openness to where God may challenge you while you serve in His vineyard. Please prayerfully consider whether this ministry is right for you. Safe Environment training and a background check is required. 

If you are interested, please contact Kateri Ambrow


School of Religious Education

Our School of Religious Education serves children from 1st-8th Grade on Tuesday’s from 6:00 PM - 7:15 PM. This includes a 2-year First Communion preparation program and the Edge program for middle school students. We also offer Parent Resource Nights throughout the year to make sure that parents have the tools they need to lead their family closer to Christ.

Confirmation

Preparation for Confirmation is a 2-year process that typically begins in the 9th grade. Our program meets on alternating Sundays between the first and second year from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM and usually begin with dinner and fellowship. The first-year students attend a day retreat in the fall and second-year students attend a weekend retreat in late winter.
