Growing In Faith Together

Gifted/First Communion Sacramental Prep

Welcome to
GIFTed: Growing in Faith Together Education/Family Faith Formation
Grades 1-5 for First Holy Communion and Reconciliation

GIFTed (Growing in Faith Together Education) is a family-centered faith formation. Our Lady of the Assumption Parish supports parents in the promise made at their children's baptism: to raise them in the Catholic faith.
Through GIFTed, the whole family grows together in faith.

First Holy Communion is a momentous occasion in the life of a Catholic child, as it brings them closer to Christ and allows them to experience the true presence of Jesus in the Eucharist

We wish to make our Religious Education program the best possible experience for you and your children.

Yours in Christ,
Lupe Ochoa,
Family Faith Coordinator & the Religious Education Team
