Program overview:

Hearts on FIRE is our new model of elementary religious education. FIRE stands for "Family-Integrated Reglious Education." We are empowering parents to be the primary catechists of their children, and doing so in fun, creative, and interactive ways! 

Think you might like to join us? We are open to every single child and family. Are you a grandparent? Many grandparents bring their grandchildren! We have fun learning about the love of Jesus Christ every Monday night! We would love to welcome you!


Elementary faith formation will conclude on Monday, May 15th.  Stay tuned for fun summer activities for kids!  

Faith formation will resume mid-September.

Time & Location:

Monday nights during the school year


1416 Grand Avenue
Manitowoc, WI 54220

Sacrament preparation:

Starting in the 2022-23 school year, all students will be required to participate in the first grade year of faith formation before they are eligible to receive the Sacraments. Please plan accordingly if your child will be a kindergartener in 2022!!

The Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) and the Sacrament of the Eucharist (First Holy Communion) are traditionally celebrated during the second grade year. 

Details for these sacraments come through faith formation and through Roncalli Catholic Schools.
