Children & Families
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.
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (3-6 y/o)
Grounded in an understanding and appreciation of the child’s engagement with Scripture and Liturgy, Catechesis of the Good Shepherd offers a gentle way to honor the genuine spiritual life of children ages 3-6 through Montessori methodology. The level I Atrium lays the foundation for the child’s encounter with the Catholic community of faith. Sessions for 2022-2023 are SATURDAY afternoons from 2:30p - 4:15p or SUNDAY mornings from 8:30a - 10:15a.
Vacation Bible School - July 17-21, 2023

Preschool through 5th grade students are welcome to participate. Many volunteers are needed to bring VBS alive!
