This Year we will offer two options for
Family Faith Formation K-6 (2020-2021)
In-Person Program and Virtual learning option.
For in-person classes, capacity will be limited due to social distancing guidelines and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Students and teachers will need to wear masks while in the building.
In the event that schools do not have on-site classes, or we are unable to hold in-person classes due to government, Archdiocesan, or St. Odilia regulations, students in grades k-6 who are signed up for in-person classes will switch to Virtual learning option.
All in-person Faith Formation options listed below are subject to government, Archdiocesan, and St. Odilia regulations due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Family Faith Formation for Grades K-6The Family Faith Program is an innovative K-6 Catholic religious education program based on the principle that parents have the most influence on the faith of their children. (This year we are adding grade 6th)Our families meet once a month at church and the other two lessons each month are taught by parents, using the digital resources emailed to them for each chapter.Elementary children will meet in the classrooms while parents will meet in the church to hear a speaker and will participate in small group discussions for some months. The nursery/preschool (Room 1608) will be open for younger children to play during class time. Children must be registered to attend classes.What is Family Faith?
Family Faith is about growing in faith together.Families gather at the church monthly. While the children meet in small groups with warm and caring catechists, parents gather in the Church to participate in engaging sessions with great speakers that will help them grow in their own faith. Children will learn about and live their faith at home with their parents. Parents are provided with easy to use materials and receive additional support and ideas several times a month by email.
Family Faith is about praying togetherWe have opportunities for families to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation and engage in prayer together at our Family Faith Nights.Family Faith is about serving together
