Parish School of Religion
Our religious education program, Family of Faith for grades 1-6, helps us, as the church, better walk with you and assist you in building a family of faith in which the Catholic culture, knowledge and relationship with Christ is not only experienced and learned within the walls of the church, but also become a part of the very fiber of your home!
This program limits the time spent learning away from home to just two faith-filled and fun sessions a month at church, and then empowers you as parents to share two sessions at home with your children when it is convenient for you! The first session each month is (usually!) on the first Wednesday of the month from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and includes dinner from 5:30 - 6 p.m. After dinner the children will gather separately while parents are learning about the theme for the month, sharing and learning with other parents and gaining a better understanding of their faith so they will feel comfortable with the home sharing aspects of the program.
We meet again on the 3rd Sunday of the month for family day! We begin with 9:30 a.m. Mass and then share a simple continental breakfast. Families then gather together to share what they have learned during the month and to continue in other discussions and activities with both their own families and other families gathered around them! We will be finished at approximately 11:45. For both days we gather in the school cafeteria.
Grades 7 and 8 meet on the same days/times but do not follow the family schedule. Instead they meet in a traditional classroom format. 7th and 8th grade students are welcome to eat meals with us but we ask that their parents come in and eat with them and then leave during class time or they are certainly welcome to join the adult component on Wednesday evenings!
