Children's Faith Formation – 2020-2021

Due to these challenging times, all students (Kindergarten - 5th Grade) will be on Home Study for this year.  Textbooks and other materials will be available for pick up soon after you register.  

  • Each student will receive
    • a textbook
    • a calendar template for completing chapters
    • chapter reviews will serve as proof a chapter was completed – chapter reviews will be collected to be turned in at the end of the year.
  • Parents will receive
    • Parent Handbook for home study with online access to lesson plans for them to guide their children through the textbook.

In addition, families will receive the following:

  • Emails will be sent to families seasonally. Emails will include
    • suggested activities for families,
    • parent articles about topics such as family life, domestic church, raising your children catholic, and passing on the faith
    • additional activities and projects that can be easily incorporated into the home learning experience
  • Online access to CatholicBrain.com, which provides the daily scripture readings for children, a daily video reflection, daily saint of the day video, and a quiz of the day. In addition, there are many other supplemental videos and activities for children as we go through the year.  These will be highlighted and recommended on a regular basis through the emails.

It is the hope that shortly after the new year, we would be able to gather families for a few events to provide some in-person activities: learning, sharing, and communal praying.  These are not scheduled at this time.

Faith Formation Fee: $25 (please note: fees can be waived if needed - contact Director of Christian Formation)

Sacrament Preparation for Reconciliation and Eucharist

Instead of beginning in the Fall as we have in the past, we will begin in the winter (Jan/Feb 2021) with the hope that we will be able to more easily have in-person family gatherings and more families will be attending Mass on a regular basis.

Sacrament Preparation Materials Fee: $50 (please note: fees can be waived if needed - contact Director of Christian Formation)
