Children & High School Formation

St. Luke Faith Formation Program:
Please watch for upcoming information for the 2020 – 2021 Faith Formation Year

Adult, GVSU and RCIA programming, The Summit (high school Youth Ministry), Sacramental preparation, and faith formation programming for children. The parish subsidizes faith formation programming to a large degree through your generosity and involvement in the parish. Many people help make our programs possible.

The following fee structure is the suggested minimum for parishioners directly involved in the program and supplements the instructional materials we use; as well as catechist training and support. Your timely payment of the fee is an example of good stewardship of the faith, support for our young folk, and the desire we need to grow in our ability of sharing the gospel with others.

John Graveline is our Faith Formation Director. For questions please contact John. If you have been preparing for Confirmation over the past year, you must be registered this fall for Youth Ministry to finish your preparations for Confirmation at the Cathedral.

Kate Ludwig is The Summit’s High School Youth Ministry Director. For questions with HS faith formation please contact Kate.

SCRIP – Families can also help support the parish and faith formation programming by participating in the parish Scrip Program.  By choosing to participate in the Scrip Program you purchase your everyday expenses at normal value, without any additional cost to you. The church then receives a percentage of your purchase from those retailers.

Other Fees – Occasionally other fees for transportation, special materials, and retreats may be needed (especially in the Sacramental and Youth Ministry programs). While we often try to meet these needs through fundraising, or have generous people donate to an event, the possibility does exist of an additional fee for special instances.
