1. Religious Formation Programs
Blessed sacrament holds Religious Formation Classes for children, teens and adults on a weekly basis throughout the school year.
Religious Formation: Blessed Sacrament offers a Religious Formation Program, with the goal of presenting the gift of faith and the beliefs of the Catholic Church to the children and young people of our parish. We offer Sacramental preparation for First Eucharist, Reconciliation and Confirmation, and we strive to make the reception of these sacraments meaningful, in order to strengthen the faith and beliefs of our parish community. Preschool - 5th grade meet Wednesday evening or Sunday morning, and middle school meets Wednesday evening. For more information, please contact Deb Wetzel at 308-395-8521.
Godparent Programs: The high school Religious Formation Program called the "Godparent Youth Group" aims to help our youth learn how to apply Christian principles and incorporate Jesus' teachings into their daily lives. Our classes meet in the homes of sponsors or at the Church, and these sponsors stay with their group throughout their high school years. Social time activities are an important part of the high school program, and time is set aside for this aspect. These groups meet on Wednesday or Sunday evenings. Central Catholic students are encouraged and invited to attend. In addition to the theology they receive, this program integrates their knowledge into a community setting. For more information, please contact Deb Wetzel at 308-395-8521.
If you are considering becoming a member of the Catholic Church or know of someone who is, the R.C.I.A. program is the process by which a person becomes a Catholic. It is a step-by-step journey into the life of the Church, which includes education, experience, prayer, liturgical celebration, etc. Normally, it begins in the Fall and peaks with initiation at the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday. Anyone is welcome to come to the R.C.I.A. program, although it is primarily for people who are "inquiring" about the Catholic Church. For more information, please contact Deb Wetzel at 308-395-8521.
