The Good Shepherd Fatih Formation program consists of several elements working together for lifelong Family Faith Formation and the support of parents as the first formers of your children’s faith:


The first and most critical element is the family’s weekly attendance at Mass. All other aspects of the program, and of our faith, stem from the Eucharist, the Source and Summit of our faith. The Mass teaches and reinforces so many aspects of our faith. Completing weekly assignments without attending Mass gives children and teens a disjointed and incomplete experience.  

Pflaum Gospel Weeklies

Bring the Mass alive for your family with this liturgically based program focusing on the Sunday Gospels. Support materials include The Gospel at Home weekly resource with discussion starters and activity ideas related to the week’s theme, videos for the entire family, and on-line assessments and reviews. The Gospel Weeklies should be completed in as close proximity to Sunday Mass attendance as possible.

All students participate in the Gospel Weeklies program. If your child is preparing for a sacrament there are additional requirements.

Classes at Good Shepherd

We will have grade-level class sessions which will meet regularly throughout the year. These are not weekly classes, rather it is a time for the students to gather as a faith community and build upon the Gospel Weeklies lessons they are completing at home. 

Family Events

Family Events will be offered at Good Shepherd throughout the year. These fun events will offer a variety of activities to support and reinforce the Gospel Weeklies lessons as well as celebrate key moments throughout the year – Mardi Gras, Journey to the Manger, Signs and Symbols of Lent, and more. 

Sacramental Preparation

First Reconciliation and First Communion

Grades 1 – 6

Preparation for First Reconciliation and First Communion is a two-year process that typically begins in 1st grade and the children receive these sacraments in May of their 2nd year.

In addition to attending Mass and participating in the Gospel Weeklies program and Family Events, children who are preparing for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist will have additional requirements.

Contact Stacy Austin with any questions about grades 1 – 6 sacramental preparation.


Grades 7 – 12

At Good Shepherd, preparation for Confirmation is a two-year process which typically occurs during 7th and 8th grades with Confirmation taking place in Fall of the 9th grade year.

If your Middle or High Schooler has not yet received First Reconciliation or First Eucharist, preparation for those sacraments will have additional requirements. First Reconciliation and First Eucharist will take place in the Spring of their second year of preparation.

Contact Miguel DeAngel with any questions about grades 7 – 12 sacramental preparation.
