The Church of St. Rosalie is dedicated to the safety and protection of our youth.  Click Here for a complete look at our policies and practices.

Adult Formation

The journey of our faith is ongoing.  Our desire to learn about our faith and our God goes beyond our Confirmation.  Formation takes us from the time of our baptism though the end of our lives on Earth.  The importance of this lifetime journey of discovery is echoed in the 1999 the US Bishops pastoral "Our Hearts were Burning within Us."

Throughout the year, our parish offers adults the opportunity to deepen their relationship with Jesus by furthering their knowledge and appreciation of our faith. 

Little Rock Scripture Study

Group meets each week on Wednesday morning from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon.  Sessions generally run 8 weeks per study.  Individual reading and preparation is required before each weekly gathering.  Faith sharing and instructional study format.  Cost per study program: $15.  Call Eileen McPhelin for study program dates (631-728-9248).

Marriage Preparation

Beginning a new life together is not only a time filled with love and joy, there is also a sense of anticipation for what the future will bring.  To ensure that every couple is fully prepared to enter into this wonderful Sacrament we have a process to assist them.

It all begins by asking engaged couples to contact the pastor to set up an appointment.  Please call him at 631-728-9461.

Baptismal Preparation

Current Formation Offerings

Throughout the year we offer various classes and seminars to assist all of us on our ongoing journey of faith. While most of these offerings take place right here in the parish, we also partner with our neighboring parishes and the diocesan Office of Faith Formation. Other valuable personal and ministerial formation opportunities are offered by the Diocese of Rockville Centre, especially through the offices of Stewardship, Worship and Respect Life.

Information about our current parish events can be found on our What's Happening page.

For information about courses offered by our diocesan offices please visit the following websites:

Internet Learning

Sometimes our schedules may be too busy to give us the time to attend a formal class. For this reason our diocese has partnered with the Virtual Learning Community for Faith Formation (VLCFF), an initiative coordinated  by the Institute for Pastoral Initiatives (IPI) at the University of Dayton, a Catholic Marianist Institution.

You can learn more about this online opportunity, the courses being offered and the discounted registration members of our parish enjoy at:

Children and Youth

At our baptism we promised to live a Christ-centered life.  At the heart of this life is the discovery of our faith.  While the parents are the first teachers, our parish offers a formal program of formation for our children and young people from kindergarten through high school.  It is not only our hope, but also our mission, that this foundation in our faith be the springboard to a life of learning and growth-ever deepening our relationship with Jesus.

Catechists

The Church of St. Rosalie takes seriously the formation of our children and youth. This is evident in the call and formation of our Catechists. A Catechist is a partner with parents who is a teacher of religious facts. However, being a Catechist is also something more. A Catechist is a personal example and witness to a life of faith and prayer.

To discover how you can share your faith with others contact the Coordinator of Religious Formation by email or by calling 631-728-9248.

Assistant Catechists and Hall Monitors

Other adults and teenagers assist the ministry of Catechesis by helping our Catechists and participants in the Meeting Room, in the Hallway and in the Religious Formation Office. Contact the Coordinator of Religious Formation about the variety of opportunities to minister.

Training in the VIRTUS program is required for all Catechists, Assistant Catechists and Hall Monitors over the age of 18.  Click Here for more information on the Protection of God's Children.

Children are invited to receive these two Sacraments after completing two years of formation and preparation. This is usually at the end of Level 2 but older children who have not yet received these Sacraments may also prepare for their reception.

Confirmation is celebrated in the Fall and is open to young people of High School Age who have completed our basic Faith Formation as well as Confirmation Level I, II and III program.
