Elementary School (Grades K-5)

Children in kindergarten are invited to join us for Faith Formation during the 9 and 10:45 am Masses, or one of several sessions offered after school throughout the week. These early years are so important, as the foundation is being built for the child’s future faith life. Joining together with their peers, the children will be immersed in their Catholic faith through an interactive curriculum which introduces them to the essential faith concepts and God’s mighty love. Lessons are presented through stories, music, games, activities and crafts. Children enrolled in a Sunday session will also share the traditional Angel Choir Performance during the joyous Advent Season!

Grades 1 and 2
We believe that the family is the primary educator and carries the great responsibility of nurturing their child’s faith. During these early sacramental years, it is our goal to enhance that learning by introducing the children to traditional Catholic prayer and worship. These two required years help to build the foundation which will allow the children to embrace and grow in the love of God, as they journey toward receiving the sacraments in second grade. We encourage you to attend Mass with your child and require regular attendance at Faith Formation during these crucial years.

GRADES 3, 4 and 5
During the elementary grades, your child will be taught how to build upon their Catholic faith and you, as the parent/guardian, are a partner in this process. Your child will learn how we worship and how we can live our beliefs in everyday life. We will build upon prayer and emphasize the Ten Commandments, Sacraments, and the Stations of the Cross. Each chapter of your child’s Faith First book has features that direct learning, develop religious literacy, reinforce content, and encourage integration of faith and life. We encourage you to aid in this process by praying as a family at home, attending Mass and Faith Formation classes. Completion of one service project is encouraged in grade five.
