Faith Formation


Per the directives of the Archdiocese, all faith formation classes have been suspended until further notice.




  Our Faith Formation program begins in grade 1, and we offer classes for students from grade 1 to grade 10.

We would be pleased to welcome you to our program!


Tuition for the 2019 - 2020 year is $80 per child (tuition payments are capped at $240 per family).  For your convenience, you may pay online using St. Denis' WeShare page.  Alternatively, checks made payable to "St. Denis Parish" may be sent to: Faith Formation, St. Denis Parish, 157 Washington Street, Westwood, MA  02090.


Preparing to receive First Reconciliation and First Eucharist is a 2 year process, usually spanning Grades 1 and 2 (older children who have not yet received these sacraments are welcome!). First Reconciliation is celebrated in the winter of Year 2, and First Eucharist is celebrated in the spring of Year 2.  Preparation includes parent-child retreats ahead of each Sacrament.

Preparation for Confirmation is a 2 year program, traditionally spanning Grades 9 and 10.  Catholic school students, who receive theology on a regular basis, are warmly welcomed.  Catholic school students should plan on attending the Confirmation retreat during both years of preparation, and should plan on attending Faith Formation classes through the parish in the second year of preparation.
