CHILDREN (Kindergarten -- 6th)

Let the children come to me; do not prevent them,
for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.

 
[Mark 10:14]

We are dedicated to helping you connect your young children to Jesus Christ and His Church. Everything we do is rooted in the love of the Gospel and is aimed at giving your family opportunities for deeper formation in faith, a life-long journey we are all on together.

CLASSROOM FORMATION

 

Our weekly sessions are held on Mondays from 3:45 to 5pm for First through Sixth grade.

The Parish Ministry Door #1 and the Faith Formation Door #3
will be open at 3:30pm and locked at 4pm for the children’s safety.

After 4pm, you may enter door #3 by buzzing the doorbell and we will grant access.
Doors #1 and #3 will reopen at 4:45pm for 5pm dismissal.
Children in first through third grade need to be accompanied by an adult to and from their room.

If a child needs to leave earlier, a parent is to enter at door #3 and sign to release the child.

We will call the room for the child to be released to meet you at the office.

If your child is absent, your catechist will give you the missed lessons to complete with your child, or you can find them below.
You can check the schedule for any additional online resources for the lesson.

FAMILY FAITH FORMATION 

(HOME STUDY)

 

Family Faith Formation is an option for parents to instruct their children at home. 

 

 Parent and children are to attend four gatherings throughout the year.

 

The first meeting is on 

Tuesday, October 25th at 6:30pm

in the Community room of the Parish Ministry Center at which time workbooks and instructions will be distributed.

  

Additional Gatherings will be held on: 

 

Tuesday, December 6th at 6:30pm

 

Tuesday, February 28th at 6:30 pm

 

Tuesday, March 28th at 6:30pm

 

Completed textbooks are to be returned to the Office by Tuesday, April 26th

 

We recommend setting a routine time weekly to complete the scheduled lessons

and using the electronic schedule for additional resources. Children are to write in the workbooks. 

Weekly opening prayers based on the upcoming Sunday’s Gospel  will be emailed to parents.

A monthly schedule of family activities will be offered here on our website.
