SUMMER FAITH FORMATION (SFF) PROGRAM

2017 Summer Faith Formation dates:

July 24-27 & July 31-August 3 from 9 am – 12 noon

* Please note – This year we have consolidated our July & August sessions. Please register early. Priority will be given to registered parishioners. A lottery process may be used for placement.

*Tuition cost is $90/student (parishioner) or $150/student (non-parishioner), payable by check. (Late registration, additional $30/student).  Childcare will be provided at parent meeting.

The Summer Faith Formation (SFF) Program is a rich and exciting two week program for elementary students (Grade 1-5) that meets Monday through Thursday for three hours. Each day, children rotate through modules consisting of: faith instruction, music & motion, craft, and storytelling all related to the primary theme. The elementary curriculum is inspired by the “Catechesis of the Good Shepherd”, a Montessori-based contemplative approach for the religious formation of children, rooted in Sacred Scripture, liturgy and respect for the child’s rich relationship with God. The curriculum rotates through a four year cycle with the following themes: Prayer & Parables, We are the Body of Christ, The True Vine: Relationship & Calling, and Sacraments & Moral Parables. When choosing this program, families are expected to have their children attend all eight days and participate in family service and parent activities planned during the year.

*Please note sacramental preparation is during the school year and is separate from faith formation. All dates become available in August and registration forms are then posted on the website.
