Faith Formation Program (Religious Education)
The Faith Formation Program (formerly know as Religious Education, CCD, and/or “church school” as some of the children called it) is up and running! Due to low enrollment and a shortage of teachers, the parish has adopted a model that literally “flips the classroom”. It has the students using a web-based program to learn the content of our current curriculum at home and gathers monthly to give the students an opportunity to share what they have learned, develop a deeper understanding of the Church’s teachings, and participate in fellowship and child-centered activities designed to deepen their faith.
Our first monthly meeting will be Tuesday evening, October 6 from 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm. We will be celebrating the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary and teaching the children how to say the rosary. You are invited to join us! If you have any questions or know of students who still need to enroll, please contact Father Dave or Paula King (348-8166).
The Confirmation Program for students in grades 8-12 will begin classes on Sunday, September 27 and will meet every other Sunday. For a complete syllabus and calendar of classes, please contact Paula King (348-8166).
