Faith Formation Registration 2022-23

Please visit our Faith Formation page for program descriptions.
There is a $25 fee per child for our Foundation program.
FOR SACRAMENT PREPARATION FIRST AND SECOND YEAR there is a $50 fee for First Communion and a $75 fee for Confirmation.

Reminder: The Sacramental preparation programs for both First Communion and Confirmation are two-year programs. Students can begin preparation for First Communion when they are in 1st grade, and they can begin preparation for Confirmation in 6th grade. During the student's first year, they will join a Foundations Class (based on their school grade level) for basic catechesis. Then during their second year, children join the First Communion/Confirmation preparation class.

To pay the fee for any of our programs, please follow the instructions during registration. You may submit a check to Our Lady Queen of Peace or make a one-time gift here: Please type "Faith Formation" and your child's name in the notes section to receive credit. If there is a need, we offer scholarships. To request a scholarship, simply write to Cecilia Lopez Oetgen.

Documentation needed: For First Communion and Confirmation, please provide a copy of the baptism certificate. We will need a copy of a certificate even if your child was baptized in our parish. If unbaptized, please submit a copy of the birth certificate. You may upload a scanned copy directly to your form, send documents to Sandra Rivera (, or send a copy to the Office of Faith Formation 2700 South 19th Street Arlington, VA 22204.
