St. Cyprian wants to join in partnership with you and your child as they grow in the Catholic Faith.  Therefore, we offer several formal religious formation classes from grades one through eight taught by experienced and certified catechists. 


Students in Grades 1-5 meet weekly 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 (see schedule) 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) 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 Middle School Program (grades 6-8) students have a more flexible schedule. Summer classes are offered for two sessions one in the morning 9:30-11:30am and the other at 1:00-3:00pm. There are also three Saturday morning options from 9:30 – 11:30am Each session will meet for 3 consecutive Saturdays. 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 sessions per school year to have fulfilled their requirement.


Children from the age 7 years old who have had at least one year of Religious Formation are invited to begin the Sacramental prep classes for Reconciliation and First Eucharist. These classes meet once a month on Tuesdays. The celebration of Reconciliation is in Advent; Eucharist is celebrated in the Spring.  Contact the Religious Formation Office for more information: (734) 283-1366 x118.

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)
