Weekly Formation Sessions

Small Learning GroupS 

Sessions are held weekly for children in first through sixth grade. In the Parish Ministry Center. We do offer a program for kindergarteners on Mondays. 

We ask that parents accompany children in Kindergarten through 4th grade to and from their groups. On Monday, the front door and door 3 will be used. On Saturdays, entrance is only at door 3.

Our groups for K through 3rd are ideally comprised of approximately fifteen youth, a catechist and an assistant. Our catechists participate in yearly training. We are blessed to have many wonderful, dedicated, faith-filled catechists.  Our assistants are both teens and adults.


We use the Allelu series for Kindergarten. This program utilizes interactive sheets to use as mealtime place-mats at home. These offer structure and support for important family rituals such as eating together, praying together, reading Scripture and talking about faith.

1st, 4th, 5th, 6th

We use the Blest are We workbooks for first, fourth, fifth and sixth grade, 

For youth, the website offers activity sheets for each chapter, puzzles, quizzes and virtual pilgrimages. For parents, there is a saint of the month, a question for the week (select year C) and a summary overview for each grade. Your children will bring home the chapter they learned about each week. We ask that you review, reinforce, and go over the GET CONNECTED pages with your child to prepare them for the next session.
