The role of parents in the faith formation of their children is indispensable. As the Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches:
"The role of parents in education is of such importance that it is almost impossible to provide an adequate substitute." CCC 2221
Our Faith Formation programs are designed to partner with parents in sharing the light of our rich Catholic faith with our children and youth. With governmental guidelines and restrictions related to the COVID pandemic ever changing, we will be supporting you even more as we offer Home School Faith Formation at the start the year with a blended learning style, providing both print and digital resources for parents to work with their child, grades 1-8. In addition, there will be focused Masses and family events at the parish to help families to ENCOUNTER Jesus, GROW in their faith, and be a WITNESS to the love of God for everyone.
All registered families will receive a print copy of the student book as well as access to online resources and a curriculum of material pertinent to their child's grade to be covered each week. Reminders and required assignments will be sent electronically each week.
Preparation for the Sacraments of Reconciliation/Eucharist and Confirmation are TWO YEAR programs. Your child must be complete both grades 1+2 to receive Reconciliation/Eucharist in Grade 2; complete both grades 7+8 to receive Confirmation in Grade 8.
