Parent-led Catechesis

Replacing the classroom model of formation, Parent-led Catechesis is a two-part process.  First, parents meet once per month on SUNDAYS from 3:00p-4:45p or TUESDAYS from 6:15p-8:00p where they learn the material and then teach students at home.  During the parent session, students attend a fun review here at Church.  Second, in addition to that formation, families attend the Family Gathering once a month.  This includes potluck (or picnic during a pandemic) and family activity. For families with grades K-7.
