Sacrament Preparation (Grades 2-3)
Beginnin Fall, 2019, our Sacrament Preparation classes will be offered on Tuesday afternoons from 3:00-4:30pm. Crafts, activities, games, movies, music, food and drama are incorporated to supplement the lesson to appeal to many learning styles and relay God’s message at an age appropriate level. We use the Finding God Catechetical Series published by Loyola Press for instruction.
Our Second Grade Class “Sac Prep 1” has special focus on Jesus and Forgiveness. This class also prepares for and receives the Sacrament of Reconciliation during Lent.
Our Third Grade Class “Sac Prep 2” has special focus on the Church Community. This class also prepares for and receives the Sacrament of Eucharist after the Easter Season.
Peacemakers (Grades 4 & 5)
Beginning Fall 2019, our Peacemaker Program will be offered two Sundays per month and will take place after the 10am mass. Children and their families are invited to come together and further explore themes including Christian Morality, the Sacraments, Scripture and Catholic Traditions.
Peacemakers are also introduced to more parish ministries such as youth choir and altar serving and assist in outreach projects such as making Valentines Day cards for the elderly at our local retirement home, holding a coat or blanket drive, or having a bake sale after mass to raise funds for disaster relief victims all over the world.
We use the Finding God Catechetical series to guide our lessons and activities.
