Daily Spotlights for Spiritual Closeness

The Office of Youth Ministry presents you with the following daily spotlights that can help you to Unleash the Gospel with the young people of your parish and help them remain spiritually close during this time of social distancing! Each week we will send out a message with new resources for these daily themes! For more resources on spiritual closeness from the Unleash the Gospel movement visit www.spiritualcloseness.org.   

Sunday– Day of the Lord!

  • Send your young people to the Palm Sunday Mass with Archbishop Vigneron at noon. Click here.
  • Encourage your teens to participate in Project YM Live at https://projectymlive.com at 8pm. This week’s guest is Fr. Mike Schmitz!

Monday– Formation Day!

  • Have you taken some time to familiarize yourself with Formed.org? It’s a subscription-based resource– some call it “Catholic Netflix”– that is free to your parishioners during this crisis. We suggest you start with the Lenten reflection videos here.

Tuesday– Saint Movie Night!

  • This week we recommend the movie “Mother Teresa of Calcutta” featuring Olivia Hussey. You can rent from Amazon or watch it free with your Amazon Prime subscription.

Wednesday– In the Word!

Thursday– Prayer Challenge!

  • This would be a great day to learn and pray the Act of Contrition together as a family! Learn more here.

Friday– Way of the Cross!

Saturday– Family Night!

  • Celebrate Holy Saturday with reflection and prayer! Here are two resources we suggest you share with your families:

Grab Bag– an idea for any day!

  • The Unleash the Gospel Communications Team is making short videos to help unpack Archbishop Vigneron’s Spiritual Guideposts for this time– check them out here: https://www.unleashthegospel.org/videos/.


St. Cyprian wants to join in partnership with you and your child as they grow in the Catholic Faith.  Therefore, we offer formal religious formation classes from grades one through eight taught by experienced and certified catechists. Classes are offered for grades 1 – 5 on Monday evenings from 6:15-7:30pm. 
An alternative to weekly religious formation classes, the Family Program (for grades 1-5) meets once a month on the second Tuesday from 6:30-8:00pm from October through May for prayer, formation and activities.  The balance of faith formation is done by the parents in the home.
Younger children ages 4-10 years are invited to attend Children’s Liturgy of the Word (CLOW) during the 9:00 and 11:00 am  masses.  CLOW is offered from September through May at the 9:00 a.m. Sunday Liturgy.  Children rejoin their families for the remainder of the Liturgy.
The children from the age 7 years are invited to begin the Sacramental prep classes for Reconciliation and First Eucharist. These classes meet on the third Tuesday of the month.  Children attending a Catholic School or the Religious Formation Program participate in a family preparation program for these sacraments.  The celebration of First Reconciliation is in Advent; First Eucharist is celebrated in the Spring.  Contact the Religious Formation Office for more information:  (734) 283-1366 x118.

The Middle School Program (grades 6-8) students have a more flexible schedule. Classes are offered on Mondays from 6:15 – 7:30 pm for 6 week sessions or on Saturdays from 9:30 – 11:30 am for 3 week sessions.  A variety of materials are used to cover issues ranging from traditional topics such as Exploring the Bible to special and sensitive topics such as Making Tough Decisions.  Students must attend 3 session per school year to have fulfilled their requirement.

Confirmation Preparation begins the in spring after the end of 8th grade. The candidates are confirmed in the winter of 9th grade. (see handbook for more details in CONFIRMATION RESOURCES)
