About our At-Home Faith Formation Program
As a parish, we recognize that parents are the primary educators of their children. Our Lady of Guadalupe in Helotes provides an At-Home self-paced faith formation program for children and youth in grades Pre-K3 through 8th. Grade appropriate workbooks are assigned to each child and youth to learn and work on from home at their own pace with the guidance of a parent or guardian.
Our At-Home program is for continuing religious education before and after receiving a sacrament such as First Holy Eucharist and Confirmation. Children in 2nd grade or higher are required to register for and complete Year 1 of the At-Home Program BEFORE enrolling in the Year 2 Sacramental Preparation classes for First Holy Communion.
