Early Childhood Faith Formation (3 years to Kindergarten)

 Jesus said, “Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
 -Matthew 19:14

Faith Formation classes for children ages 3-5 are offered on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:30 a.m.  Classes run from October-May, with registration open May-August.

Calendar:
Calendars for the next Faith Formation year will be available in September 2019.

Curriculum:
“Gospel Weeklies” from Pflaum Publishing have been selected which allows children to connect to the gospel Catholic doctrine.  The materials used are as follows:

    • Seeds Guide – Pre-school (3 and 4 years old)
    • Promise Guide – Grades K-1

The Gospels are our primary source for knowing and adhering to Jesus Christ in faith. The Pflaum Gospel Weeklies put Jesus Christ at the center of catechesis by building lessons around the Sunday Gospels of the liturgical year. The Gospels are pivotal to catechesis because Jesus Christ is at the center.  Another component offered is connecting the Gospel Weeklies to what the Catholic Church believes and teaches.

Parents are encouraged to check out additional resources for the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies Seeds Guide.
