The primary catechists in any person’s life are their parents and other family members. Indeed, it is the constant teaching of the Church where the parents are the primary teachers of the faith, not the parish. In family life, the faith should be shared and lived as a natural part of the daily routine. It is in this “domestic church” where a child learns to live his or her faith as well as understand and share it.
Keeping this in mind, our pre-K-6 program is designed to empower families to form and educate their children in the faith. Our approach is to proclaim the message of Christ, build up the community and provide opportunities to serve the Church.
For the pre-k through grade 6 children, we focus on faith basics and sacramental preparation for First Eucharist and First Penance. We are blessed to have teachers who devote their time, talents and treasures into passing along their faith to our parish children. We benefit from having additional support from our parents group, volunteer aids and substitute teachers.
The Guiding Principles of the program are defined by successes in the following areas:
