Christian Formation - Completion of Requirements and Athletic Eligibility

Minimum requirements are set for successful completion of each year of Christian Formation class. A well-rounded Catholic child is our goal in this partnership with parents.

Annual Expectations

    • Required attendance in class (classes may not be made up on the other day if applicable)
      • K4/K5 students must be enrolled in the in-person Jr. Leo's program for Athletic eligibility
    • Complete the online Prayer Experience for appropriate Grade Level (Grades 1 - 6)
    • Youth Holy Hour attendance (Grades 3 - 11) 
    • First Reconciliation Prayer Service attendance (Grade 2) 
    • Complete and submit Eight Mass Reflections (Grades 2 -11) 
    • Required Hours of Service (Grades 7 - 11)
    • Family Faith in Action Event fulfilled (Grades 4 - 9 with 1 parent)
    • Acceptable Behavior- If a student reaches a third incident, participation in Athletics will be suspended.

The Importance of Sacramental Readiness

An important part of your child’s formation experience includes preparation to receive Sacraments.  When a child is not fully prepared through attendance/participation in class and completion of the requirements, his or her readiness to receive the Sacraments will be reviewed and potentially delayed.  Discussion with Director(s), Pastor, and parents along with your child, will determine what additional instruction and formation needs to be completed.


In order to be eligible to participate in St. Leonard Athletics Programs, students in K4 - 11th grade must fulfill all requirements for the year of participation by the deadline.  
Per Christian Formation Eligibility Standards, students must complete the requirements for the current year in order to maintain their eligibility for the following year.  
All students have a completion date of March 30, 2022 to maintain Athletic Eligibility for the 2022 - 2023 year.

Students may not leave class early or miss class due to a St. Leonard Athletics event or activity.  Participation in the St. Leonard Athletics program is a privilege for students who continue to complete all requirements in Christian Formation or attend St. Leonard School.

Missing Sacramental Preparation

Students with missing Sacramental preparation are expected to complete the appropriate program / materials and be caught up within the first two years of enrollment in Christian Formation to maintain Athletic Eligibility.
