Elementary Faith Formation Grades K-4
Children’s Liturgy of the Word
CLW is a liturgy experience for children during the Sunday Masses in which the Sunday scriptures proclaimed allow for participation and peaceful response by the children.
Vacation Bible School
VBS is a popular themed summer spiritual adventure for children who have just finished kindergarten through grade 6. A week of VBS includes FUN, stewardship, music, games, snacks, crafts, skits, and Bible lessons! There is always a connection between God and the theme, leading children to know, love and serve the Lord in a special way! VBS typically runs the third week in June.
Sacramental Preparation Grades 2-4
Second grade is typically the year children prepare for and celebrate the sacraments of first reconciliation and First Holy Eucharist. However, children in grades 2-4 who are in need of these sacraments may prepare together. If your child is older than fourth grade and seeking sacramental preparation, they may prepare with their family through our family catechesis sessions.
Family Catechesis (CIC)
Family catechesis is an experience that welcomes families into the mysteries of the faith through monthly sessions. Any family that wishes this type of catechesis and fellowship with other families is welcome to join. Family sessions take place on Sunday mornings from 10:15-11:45 am.
