Children's Faith Formation
The Church of the Nativity invites all children and youth, baptized or not, to participate in the catechetical program. Faith Formation is designed for children in grades K-8 who are not currently attending a Catholic school.
The goals of Nativity’s Faith Formation are:
- Ongoing conversion to Jesus Christ
- Full participation in the life of the Catholic Church
- To foster community among the students, their families and the Parish community

Nativity Faith Formation 2021-2022 will have two options for parishioners. Families may enroll their children in a fully in-person or a fully-online program.

First Communion and First Reconciliation
In union with the Diocese of San Diego, there is a two year process to prepare students for First Holy Communion, which begins in First Grade and completes in Second Grade. We also have an option for those who wish to begin their First Holy Communion journey post first/second grade.
Home Based Catechesis/ Home Schooling
If attending Faith Formation at Nativity is not possible due to an extenuating circumstance, we are happy to help provide curriculum and a guide for parents to instruct their children at home.
