Grades K-6 Religious Education
St. Matthew Campus
Heavenly father, we are your humble servants, we come before you in need of hope. We need hope for a calm and joyful future. We need hope for love and kindness. We pray for peace and safety. In your name we pray. Amen
Welcome! Our 2020-21 Faith Formation year will look a little different but we hope it will be a year where we will grow in our faith, our hope and our love through our trust in Jesus Christ.
This year we will offer remote learning (Zoom classes) or home study and monthly special classes.
Our first semester begins the week of October 19th and runs through December. If possible, we hope to have “normal” classes beginning in February. If that isn’t possible, then we will continue with remote learning, home study and monthly special classes.
We will be using Pflaum Gospel Weeklies. Each lesson is based on the Sunday Gospels. The lessons connect the Gospel to the children’s lives and to the doctrine that springs from the Gospel message. The Gospel Weeklies magazines come in print as well as digital. It is a very family friendly program and allows for parents with multi-grade level children to teach the whole family together.
For more information on the K-6 program, please check out the Parent Orientation video below.
Wishing you hope, peace, health and happiness.
