Children’s Home Faith

We remain united as a parish family in prayer!

Our parish community supports parents in their vocation as the primary educators of their children by providing faith formation opportunities. Together, our goal is to offer a faith-engaging experience that allows children to discover the truth and beauty of the Catholic Faith and grow in their relationship with God.

General Resources to support & inspire you during this time:

  • FORMED: a great gift provided by our parish!  Sign up at https://formed.org/ with our parish Code: 6FGQHZ 
  • Catholic Icing: a great website designed by a Catholic Home School mom with lots of resources, crafts & activities https://www.catholicicing.com/ 
  • CathKids: CathKids is a weekly interactive experience with a short, animated video on the Sunday reading, questions to stimulate discussion, a simple activity & prayer. It’s perfect to use in place of Children’s Liturgy of the Word! https://cathfamily.org/cathkids-faith-unlimited/
  •  “You Do Not Need to Worry” Prayer for Children: check out this simple PRAYER from Tiny Saints!
We encourage families to do a Bible Study of the Acts of the Apostles this Easter season! It is particularly fitting to study this book as we approach Pentecost on May 31. Please see below for background documents on each chapter in order help you navigate through the book. The goal of these documents is simply to provide you with a little more context and substance for your prayer, and maybe give you some talking points for discussion if you decide to do the study as a family. We encourage you to open the Scriptures individually or as a family to this glorious story of the beginnings of our Holy Mother Church.

Grades 1-5 are to continue working in their textbooks to complete them by the end of May.
