Family Faith Formation

Daily and Sunday Masses have resumed – find out more on the Parish News page! During this time, Sacred Heart will continue to provide a live stream of Sunday Mass, which can be viewed here.  Know that the Franciscan Friars keep you all in prayer. Be well. Be smart. Be holy

Sacred Heart’s Children’s Faith Formation meetings and programs are going Hybrid! All sessions will be offered in-person OR via Zoom.

Sacred Heart offers an active program for the growth and development of faith in our children and young people. With ongoing programs for children and youth, we seek to provide a place to gather together, to grow in faith, and to foster a deeper relationship with God and one another as part of the lifelong faith formation journey.

Faith Formation sessions are twice a month for children and youth ages Pre-K 4 through High School, along with their parents. Sessions typically last from September through April, from 10:30 am – 12:00 pm in-person on Sunday’s at the Sacred Heart North Campus, 3515 N. Florida Ave. and 6:30-7:30 pm on Wednesday evenings via Zoom, unless otherwise indicated.
