"Education in the faith by the parents should begin in the child's earliest years. This already happens when family members help one another to grow in faith by the witness of a Christian life in keeping with the Gospel. Family catechesis precedes, accompanies, and enriches other forms of instruction in the faith. Parents have the mission of teaching their children to pray and to discover their vocation as children of God. The parish is the Eucharistic community and the heart of the liturgical life of Christian families; it is a privileged place for the catechesis of children and parents (Catechism of the Catholic church #2226)."
The program for grades 1-5 will be fully in-classroom for 2021-22. We will be using St. Mary's Press's Discover! Finding Faith in Life. For those that need a virtual option, there will be one available.
Our Middle School program (grades 6-8) will be using Epic! from Life Teen this year. Our middle schoolers will also be meeting weekly this year. We are excited to introduce this program, courtesy of the Knights of Columbus.
