Faith Formation

Students at Pope Francis Global Academy will receive daily religious instruction, and participate in weekly mass at St. Tarcissus for the North Campus and St. Pascal for the South Campus. Sacramental preparation will be incorporated into religion class, and for the first two years, students will celebrate the sacraments of First Reconciliation, Communion and Confirmation at their home parish. Outreach Sunday Masses will be scheduled for families at each of the four parishes, as historically family Masses were held, with a reception to follow.                                                

Each campus will alternate hosting entire school events to bring students in every grade together to work on sacramental projects, service projects and seasonal activities. At each campus, students will participate in a Faith Partners program, with older students matched up with younger students to work on projects. Students will be actively involved not only in the school service projects, but also service ministries found in each parish.  Participation in parish ministries such as the local food pantry supported by St. Cornelius, or the works of the St. Vincent de Paul Society at Our Lady of Victory, St. Pascal and St. Tarcissus offer an opportunity to cultivate a sense of mission as a way of life.
