GIFT-Growing In Faith Together – Registration has begun for the 2020-21 school year. Families with children who will be in grades K-5 can find registration forms on our website (right sidebar). We will be adapting our program as needed according to the state guidelines in September, but are proceeding with scheduling dates through the year as we usually do.
The GIFT program is a wonderful tool for families in establishing a foundation of faith for their children. We provide activities and learning opportunities for the family to grow in their faith together. Read more about our program online and contact me if you have any questions.
This year, our GIFT families learned about the seasons of the church year. Here are some children around the Advent wreath.
Registration has begun for the sacraments of Eucharist and Reconciliation for the 2020-21 school year. Children entering grade two and up are welcome to participate in preparation for these sacraments. Visit our website for more information and registration forms. Information and Registration
Calling all students entering seventh grade this fall! You are invited to participate in the preparation program for the sacrament of Confirmation. Preparation at St. Mary’s is a two year process culminating in the celebration of Confirmation in the spring of eighth grade. See our website for registration information and contact me if you have any questions.
Children’s Liturgy of the Word – As families are attending Mass online, we wanted to provide activities for children to understand the gospel message, just as they do in CLOW. Thanks to Madison Foldessy for creating a lesson to do at home on Sundays. These boys are enjoying the cross craft.
