Kyle Piatak

Kyle Piatak is the Secondary Director of Faith Formation at St Anthony Church. He coordinates the program for the junior high school and high school students in preparation for Confirmation.  A majority of his position requires working with students and families as they prepare for the sacrament.  As he explained, “The Formation Office is a united program through which the preparation for the sacraments and cultivation of our youths’ faith is the essence of the work. For myself, this takes on many shapes; I research the best programs for our students and work with catechists who teach the classes, I also teach classes, plan the Confirmation retreat, and coordinate with the students as they complete their preparations for the sacrament.”

Kyle began working at St. Anthony in 2013 in addition to his position as a theology teacher at Holy Cross High School in Waterbury. He credits his interactions with the youth at St. Anthony as strengthening his faith. “Working with young people outside of the school environment is always eye opening. Here at St. Anthony it has been a blessing to see our families support their children’s faith development through participation in events like the Living Stations of the Cross, the Epiphany pageant, the Family Formation Program and Family Masses.”

The Holy Thursday Mass at St Anthony is most inspirational to Kyle. “I love the tradition of the 3rd grader students processing behind Fr. Mark as he carries the Eucharist around the Church before he rests the Eucharist in the Monstrance for adoration.”

In his free time Kyle enjoys spending time with his small family, simply his wife and himself.
