Catholic Formation

MISSION: Our parish patron, St. Charles Borromeo, was instrumental in developing the first comprehensive CCD (Confraternity of Christian Doctrine) program following the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century. Because of his work in this area, he is the recognized patron saint of catechists. It is in the spirit of St. Charles’ enthusiasm to lovingly spread the faith that we continue to teach the good news of Catholicism. As a child is initiated into the Catholic-Christian community at Baptism, the parish family promises to support the parents as the child’s first and best teachers of our faith and values. The Catholic Youth Formation (CYF) program at St. Charles is designed to assist in this vital role. Christ-centered classes, community-building experiences, and service-learning opportunities support the parents’ role in fostering knowledge of doctrine and scripture, involvement in prayer and ministry, commitment to social justice, and the development of strong moral values.   The needs, concerns and issues pertaining to Christian Formation and our role in Evangelizing our community and beyond are represented at St. Charles’ Christian Formation / Evangelization Commission meetings, held bi-monthly in the Parish. If you have any questions or comments for the Commission, or wish to join, please contact the parish office for assistance at (414) 281-8115.

Catholic Youth Formation (CYF)

The term “Catholic Youth Formation” (CYF) has been adopted at St. Charles to replace the more traditionally established “Confraternity of Christian Doctrine” (CCD) as the title of our religious education program for grades C4 & C5 and grades 1—11. “Catholic Youth Formation” more appropriately defines the focus of the religious education programs for today. The goal of CYF is to help develop educated faith-seekers, who are both aware of-and actively involved in their faith.

Besides the classroom experience, Confirmation students will participate in learning service projects, a retreat, prayer services, and experience special guest speakers.

Religious Education and Sacrament Preparation (Reconciliation, Eucharist & Confirmation) Role of Parents While the catechesis offered within the family is ordinarily informal, unstructured, and spontaneous, it is no less crucial for the development of the child’s faith… Parents are catechists precisely because they are parents. Formation for Children School-age children should receive formal and systematic catechesis in a parish-based catechetical program, a Catholic school, or a program of home-based catechesis in which the content of the faith and the experience of Christian life is presented authentically and completely. National Directory for Catechesis 203-4 The above information is taken from the National Directory for Catechesis and can be found on the archmil.org website under the John Paul II Center - Catechesis and Youth Ministry Religious Education. We provide this information in our CYF Family Handbook here at St. Charles Borromeo. As a parish community we follow the above guidelines for catechism of our children. With support of our parish Christian Formation Commission and our Pastor we apply further that parents requesting sacrament preparation for their children for Reconciliation, Eucharist or Confirmation must have their children participate in one year of formation prior to immediate sacrament preparation. The Archdiocese of Milwaukee Sacramental Guidelines states: “Children commonly participate in a sacramental preparation program for at least one year prior to…immediate preparation. This on-going catechesis…forms the foundation for the immediate catechesis for (the sacraments).” If you have questions about the following guidelines please contact Cathy Krol or Lety Kenny at the parish office.
