Elementary Formation (Gr K5 - 5)
Elementary Faith Formation is held on Sunday mornings from 11:00AM-12:30PM, two sessions per month, October - May. Children are dismissed from the 10am Mass with their catechists to attend class.
There are four Saturday Formation Masses at 5pm on the calendar in September, December, March, and May. These masses are prepared by certain grades, and students are invited to be lectors, ushers, gift bearers, acolytes, and greeters.
Our curriculum is based on the Sunday Scripture readings for each week as well as a strong focus on basic Catholic beliefs and prayers. We use the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies: Promise; Good News; and Ventures, to help guide the sessions. Our catechists use a wide variety of teaching methods including art, whole group and small group discussions and activities, skits, hands-on reenactments and visits to the church.
Children are eligible to receive their First Reconciliation and First Communion during the second grade (age 7). Preparation for First Reconciliation and First Communion is the 2nd grade curriculum with parents attending select class times throughout the year. It is strongly recommended that a child attending sacramental prep have some sort of Formation experience before starting preparation for these sacraments.
