FAQs


PARISHIONERS ONLY?

Yes.


We think it best that families

be registered parishioners

so we can live together a

common life with you.


Therefore, you will need to be

registered parishioners here

at Christ the King.


However, you do not need

to be from Commack to register.

We are relaxing our boundaries.



ENROLLMENT DEADLINE?

Yes.


Please register your child(ren)

for A FAMILY OF FAITH

by August 31st.



OTHER OPTIONS?

No.


Not this year.

Not here, anyway.


Other parishes are offering

different Faith Formation models.


Here at Christ the King

A FAMILY OF FAITH

will constitute the

entire program.



ARE PARENTS TEACHING?

Yes and No.


Parents are always the

primary teachers of the faith for

their children.


However, because both parents

and children are attending together,

parents are not expected to communicate

the entire lesson.


Instead, parents should

reengage the lesson at home.

(e.g.) Asking questions, praying

about what you learned,

doing an activity... etc.



ATTENDANCE REQUIRED?

Yes.


Attendance this year

will be recorded and required

for both children and parents.



WHERE WILL WE MEET?

Regular instruction will be held

in the Auditorium.


On other occasions, we will

meet in the Church.



VOLUNTEERS?

Yes, please!


Volunteers will be needed to help

with the organization of the group

and with break-out sessions.


However, we are moving away from

the classroom model and so

we will not be asking for

classroom catechists.



ONLINE OPTION?

No.


We will still make

videos for the program to be

posted here on our website, but

they will supplement the coursework.

They will not replace the required

in-person participation.



SACRAMENTAL PREP?

Yes.


Specific instruction

will be provided to those families

whose children are preparing

for First Communion (Level 2)

or Confirmation (Level 8).


The Sacrament of Reconciliation

will be available throughout

the entirety of the year.
