Faith Formation Options for 2021-22 (Grades PreK-6)

Thank you for your interest in our Faith Formation programs. We pray that one or more of these options will serve your family well!
 
 

Sunday Morning Faith Formation (PreK-1)

Students in grades PreK-1 can participate in Sunday Faith Formation sessions, which will be held during the 9:30 Mass each Sunday, from October through April. These sessions utilize the Promise curriculum from Pflaum. (Families with students in grades K-1 can also consider participating in the “A Family of Faith” option, described below.)

A Family of Faith (Grades K-6)

Families with students in grades K-6 are welcome to participate in a family faith formation program, which uses the "A Family of Faith" curriculum from the Sophia Institute. This program seeks to support and nurture strong Catholic families by encouraging and equipping parents to share their own faith with their children.

Families will gather at the church twice each month, starting in October and running through April. These sessions will be held on the 1st and 3 rd Wednesdays from 5:30-6:30 p.m. During the first session of each month, Father Jerry will speak to parents and students about a faith topic. During the second session of each month, small groups will work together to explore and learn more about the faith topic for that month. This program also seeks to build Christian community by connecting families with other families within the program. Families will be assigned to a cohort, which is a small group of 3-4 other families which they will do the small group activities with throughout the year. This ongoing association allows families to build trust and relationships. Families are encouraged to request other families which they would like to be grouped with. An extensive Parent Guide book will help parents lead students through engaging at-home activities during the weeks that they do not have sessions at the church.

Grade Specific Sessions (Grades 3-6)

Students in grades 3-6 are welcome to participate in grade specific faith formation sessions instead of the family based option outlined above. For these Grade Specific Sessions, students will gather at the church, in their own grade’s room, twice each month. These sessions will be held on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month, from 5:30-6:30 p.m., from October through April.

A faith-based activity will be provided to families for them to do together during the weeks that they do not have sessions at the church.

(There are no grade specific sessions for 2nd grade, since students in 2nd grade are invited to prepare for the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion, which are primarily “at-home” programs. Grade specific sessions for grades PreK-1 are held on Sunday mornings, as described above.)

Registration Information

 
The fee for FF is $80 for the first child, and $100 for two or more children.
