Faith Formation Orientation

Program

Faith Formation is to educate students who do not attend Catholic School, the traditions, customs and beliefs of the Catholic Faith. We use a Gospel oriented program that builds upon the education yearly. Faith Formation is an ongoing process and does not stop with Confirmation, but helps us to continue to learn each and every day ways to draw closer to God.

Christmas Pageant

Throughout the fall we will be working with all of the Faith Formation students, in preparing for a Christmas Pageant. The Christmas Pageant will be held on a Sunday in January, at 12:30pm in the Church. There will be no class that morning for Grades K-5. Attendance and participation, at the Christmas Pageant, by all students is expected and will be counted as a scheduled class day.

All parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends are invited that day to see the talents of these wonderful students on display.

Crafts & Projects

The students often work on crafts and projects during the year. This year we will be making an effort to “show off” their talents a bit more by displaying them, when appropriate, in the Parish Hall for the Sunday “coffee and donuts” fellowship time. All are encouraged to stop by and see their creations when displayed.

Parent Classes

During the course of the school year there will be three (3) Parent Classes. Attendance at these classes by one or both parents or guardian is expected. The will be conducted in the Parish Hall concurrently with that day’s Faith Formation classes.

Jr. CCW As parents you are the primary educators of your children, in life and in their faith. The classes will be geared toward helping you in that extremely important task.
