Sacramental Preparation:

Our religion education program shall present the central doctrines of the Catholic faith in keeping with the norms set by the National Catechetical Directory and in accordance with the Catechism of the Catholic Church. St. Ferdinand is an apprenticeship in Christian living that provides for the students a complete formation in the Christian life through teaching the message of the Gospel, participating in the life of the community, developing a spiritual life of prayer and worship and reaching out in service to others, especially the poor. The school is deeply committed to living Christ-like by showing daily compassion, understanding, love, support, and concern as Catholics. As parish school, students are fully prepared to enter into celebration of sacraments of Reconciliation, Communion, and Confirmation in both Polish and English languages. Sixth grade students perform passion play on Palm Sunday. Seventh grade students enact and present living Stations of the Cross on Good Friday. All students participate in school’s annual Christmas program which is well attended by over 700 parents and Family members. The family Christmas Mass on December 25th offers students and parents an opportunity to celebrate in fullness of the season as a parish community.
