Faith Formation

Welcome to Journey of Faith, the Faith Formation program at Mary of the Visitation.  We are excited to invite all members of all ages in our faith community to participate in our monthly sessions!

Journey of Faith is for ages Kindergarten through adult. Sessions meet once per month for an hour and a half, and all family members will attend at the same time on the same day. Adults gather to learn and reflect on the month’s topic while Kindergarten through grade 10 youth meet in grade level classes. At least one parent of youth in Kindergarten – Grade 10 is expected to attend when their children attend.


Sessions meet Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm at the Becker and Big Lake locations.  If you have a preference of location, please indicate that when registering.

Preparation for first celebrations of the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist begins in grade 2. Preparation is primarily done at home with support and resources from the parish. Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation begins in Grade 10 and Confirmation is celebrated in the fall of Grade 11. We utilize the guidelines from the Diocese of St. Cloud, which include a retreat, sponsor guidebook, and learning centers.

Parishioners of any age are invited and encouraged to attend the adult sessions.
