The following Faith Formation classes are offered:
PreK – K (ages 3 and up) - Offers the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, a Montessori-based curriculum and program. Each week, children are presented with developmentally appropriate hands-on materials teaching and modeling either aspects of our liturgical tradition or Bible stories. Following a presentation of a story or a particular material, children are invited to spend time with material from the various shelves and explore them on their own. This is a wonderfully rich and tactile classroom environment allowing the kids to be fully engaged while also learning about the liturgical seasons and colors, how to set the altar, and various elements of the worship and sacraments. The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Information
Grades 1-3- Offers a “Lectionary-based” Bible lesson; matching the readings used in the Sunday worship service . The early elementary class supplements its curriculum with a weekly resource: The Sunday Papers- Junior Edition. These weekly lessons are designed for younger children featuring one bible lesson offered in a cartoon kid-friendly format. The Sunday Papers illustrate the bible story with big, bold artwork, a simple story line, and an activity page for coloring designed to stir children's imaginations and spirituality.
Grades 4-6 - Each week the upper elementary grades study the four bible passages being read in the Sunday worship service. The upper elementary class supplements its curriculum with a weekly resource: The Sunday Papers. These weekly lessons are designed for older children featuring one bible lesson offered in a cartoon kid-friendly format. The Sunday Papers illustrate the bible story with big, bold artwork, a simple story line, and an activity page for coloring designed to stir our older children's imaginations and spirituality. The children read, discuss, color and sometimes chose to make a skit out of the Sunday Paper Lessons. The Sunday Paper Example
