Children’s Catechumenate

If your child has not been baptized in a Roman Catholic church they would be a part of our Children’s Catechumenate program.  This program has been adapted for children based on the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA).  This is a program based on sacrament preparation and the individual needs of each family member, so an appointment is necessary to begin.

*To schedule an appointment to meet with the Coordinator please call the Religious Education Office: (714) 846-1187

Jr. High Grades 7 – 8

Faith formation classes are offered on Tuesday evenings 7:00-8:15.  Weekly themes challenge students to apply the Word of God in Scripture and Church teaching to their daily lives.  The topics will also deal with making good decisions in their lives regarding personal safety, peer pressure and leading chaste lives.

Students also participate in our Jr. High L.I.F.T. nights, 6 nights throughout the school year.  “Living In Faith Together”; that’s what these L.I.F.T. nights are all about!  These are fun filled large group gatherings of ALL Jr. High students from the parish led by inspirational High School and College students.  This is a valuable program designed because every young person needs to have role models and peers to share their faith journey with and to understand what it means to be a Catholic teen in our world.

If your Jr. High child has not been baptized in the Catholic Church, they would also be a part of our Children's Catechumenate.

High School Grades 9 – 12

Confirmation 

Teens, 9th to 12th grade, are invited to journey in relationship with Christ and the community here at St. Bonaventure as they prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation.  The process is minimum of two years, and consists of once a month Sunday classes where teens dive into the love of God through prayer, activities, faith sharing, small group processing and Mass.  Event nights serve as time for teens to bond with their fellow Catholics, play together, pray together, and participate in various experiences such as Adoration, service opportunities, game nights, and social nights.  Confirmation is an opportunity to walk closer in relationship with Jesus and the Catholic faith as the gifts of the Holy Spirit are sealed in the hearts of our young people.  

St. Bonaventure Youth 

ALL teens, incoming 9th to outgoing 12th, are invited to be a part of the Youth Events here at St. Bonaventure. Join us once a month following the 5 pm Youth Mass for good food, games, and fun!  Feel free to bring a friend. 

Teens/Young Adults who have been Confirmed are invited to join us as leaders.  We would love to have your creativity and passion to help plan these fun events.
