Elementary Sunday Catechesis

Our pre-school and elementary program happens on Sunday mornings, regitration is available for two time slots of 8:15-9:15am or 10:45-11:45am.  Our first session for the 2016-2017 year will be on September 18.  This first class session will be a special meet & greet with the catechist (parents are required to stay).  On a rotated basis throughout the year school year, parents are asked to both help in the classroom (and bring a snack) as well as attend two special receptions during the class time. 

First Sacraments

Preparation for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist (Communion) is incorporated into the regular faith formation classes, with two half-day retreats and rehearsal.  Parents are required to attend retreats and rehearsal.  Parents of children who are registered for First Sacraments are to attend the two meetings (integrated with the 2nd grade parent receptions) for imporant information and updates.


Kids Corral for Christ (KC4C)

Kids Corral for Christ, or KC4C (formally called K4J), is an elementary youth group program.  We meet once a month (Sept-May) from 6pm-8pm, usually on a Friday night.  Each night includes a skit, song, virtue, and saint of the month, and the nights are run on a rotation of crafts, snack, mission, and games.  Led by our middle school and high school KC4C Captains, these nights provide an opportunities for children to both grow in their faith and build lasting friendships.  Dates can be found in the KC4C Calendar.
