What’s happening with Christian Formation?

Hello Everyone,

I hope that everyone is doing well during this crazy time.  As you know from Father Kevin’s email, we will not be able to go back to in person Sunday School in September.  We have decided to start the year “remotely”, with the hopes at some point will be able to have Sunday School in person again.

I am sure you have many questions as to how this will work, and we are and have been working on the best solution for all of us at this point.  We are going to start registration now for Sunday School.  We will be putting together packets for each child that signs up.  Around the last week of August, we will be scheduling a time for pick up of the packets at the church using the social distancing guidelines.  We will also be setting up google classroom (which I will send out more details about.).  Chapel lessons will be prerecorded.  Everything will be sent out each week by Sunday morning.  Sunday School will begin on Sunday, September 13th.

In regards to the packets, each child will receive a bag with 6 weeks’ worth of lessons (all labeled).  There are general supplies (which are listed below) that we use in the Sunday School that you will need.  If you do not have them, please let me know when registering.  Any additional supplies we will provided in the bag/packet.

General Supplies:  clear tape, colored pencils, construction paper, crayons, glue/glue sticks, markers, masking tape, pens, pencils, scissors, stapler, and white paper.

I know that we were suppose to have communion instruction last year for children 3rd grade and higher.  We have not forgotten, but we will need to wait a little bit longer on scheduling that.

For any and all questions, please feel free to contact myself or Father Kevin, until then we thank you for your ongoing support of this program and we look forward to planting the seeds that will that will keep our youngest parishioners rooted in their faith.

Sincerely,

 

Lisa Chiara
