FAITH FORMATION RE-IMAGINED: JOIN US
Through a combination of Zoom Sessions and In-Person Sessions (COVID guidelines) we are ready to grow and support one another in our rich Catholic Faith!
Faith Formation is not about what you “get” out of it, it is not a CONSUMABLE product. It IS a lifelong process of investing in one another (The Body of Christ) in faith, challenging and stretching our spiritual muscles to grow and strengthen, and linking arms with the Family of God as we learn to be Disciples of Jesus.
The Holy Spirit moves in and through the gathered family of God as we listen, share inspirations and feel safe enough to voice our doubts and questions. Relationships/ friendships deepen. Trust happens. Spiritual growth blossoms and matures, leading to appreciation and understanding of the presence of God in our daily lives. This in turn, prompts us from within to share the GOOD NEWS through our actions and our words.
YOUR PRESENCE MATTERS.
September 27th is our Faith Formation Kick Off.
This is how the day will look…

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (due to Covid we will not be to offer CGS this year)
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) was developed in 1954 by an Italian Bible scholar (Sofia Cavalletti) and a Montessori expert (Gianna Gobbi). The aim was to provide children with the opportunity to develop a deep relationship with God using a prepared environment (called an “atrium”) with many dioramas and hands-on materials. In fall of 2018, we implemented CGS at our preschool, and began to implement CGS in our Life Kids PreK & K in January 2019. The children love time in the atrium, which includes many hands-on materials. To learn more about CGS, click here.
Vacation Bible School (VBS)
Students ages 3 yrs. through 5th grade join together for one week every summer to learn about the love of Jesus through skits, music, games, and more. Students in 6th-12th grades and adults help out as volunteers.
