BLESSSED SACRAMENT PARISH FAITH FORMATION 2022-2023 Online Registration 

REGISTRATION WILL BEGIN IN EARLY SEPTEMBER 2022! 

We are already planning for next fall's Faith Formation program.  In order for our program to be fulfilling, exciting and meaningful we need many volunteers. However, we do need to be sure that we maintain a nurturing and safe environment for everyone.

In order to keep our young parishioners safe, the Diocese of Norwich has set forth the following requirements:

1. Every new volunteer must have all Safe Environment paperwork and training completed before the start of classes in September. This will include proof of identification and a screening process. Our Faith Formation staff will guide you through the entire process. Everything takes about 1 hour or less to complete. This may be done on your own or in our office. 

2. Returning volunteers may be asked to renew or update their paperwork and or training.

3.  Mandated Reporter training is also asked of our volunteers every two years.

Guidelines and requirements are subject to change and are all mandated by the Diocese of Norwich.

Anyone interested in teaching, or volunteering in any capacity for next year's program please click Here to complete the Faith Formation Interest Form.  If you have any concerns or questions please contact Bridget Thurston at bridget.thurston@cath-comm.org or 860-872-0200 x306
