FAITH FORMATION

Dedicated to inspiring our children and young adults in the Catholic faith and tradition, the St. Veronica Faith Formation Program has been instructing our youth since the early years of the Parish. Included in the religious education of our children are the two-year sacramental preparation programs for First Holy Communion and Confirmation. Classes are held on Wednesday afternoons (grades 1-6), Wednesday evenings (grade 7 & Confirmation Year I/no earlier than Grade 8) and Saturday mornings (grades 1-6). Confirmation at St. Veronica is conferred no earlier than the 9th grade. Our parish is also blessed to host a Special Needs Faith Formation program for the youth of the Peninsula, sponsored by the Archdiocese of San Francisco. In addition to the classes taught by our dedicated volunteer catechists, the Faith Formation Program strives to create a family atmosphere and inclusiveness with the rest of the Parish community by encouraging participation in Parish ministries and activities.
