Elementary Sunday Catechesis

Our pre-school and elementary program occurs on Sunday mornings, enrollment is available for two time slots: 8:15-9:15am or 10:45-11:45am.  Our first session for the 2017-2018 program year will be September 17.  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 expected to visit the classroom.  There are monthly parent sessions during formation.  These sessions are led by Mark.  Themes will be announced closer to the start of the year. 

First Sacraments

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

 

Kids Corral for Christ (KC4C)

Kids Corral for Christ, or Corral, 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. The nights have a rotation of crafts, snack, mission, and games.  Led by our middle school and high school Corral Drovers, these nights provide an opportunities for children to both grow in their faith and build lasting friendships.  Dates can be found in the Corral Calendar.


Vacation Bible School

July 17-21, 2017
9:00am-12:00pm, daily

Send your kids on an imaginative, impacting adventure!  At Maker Fun Factory VBS, kids discover not only that God made them the way they are, but for a purpose too.  Maker Fun Factory is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Sciency-Fun Gizmos™, team-building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life. (Since everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy.  Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe shoes.)  Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life—something we call God Sightings.  Get ready to hear that phrase a lot! Your kids will also participate in a hands-on mission project! Each day we will encourage kids to bring specific items to help support our very own Agape mission trip.  Kids will get to support a mission within our own parish!
