Glorifying the Lord With Our Lives

Whole Family Catechesis

We offer a Whole Family Catechesis program geared toward families with children in Kindergarten - 5th grade; however, older and younger children may attend as well. Supporting one another as families will help everyone to live out their faith in the home and in the community. There are generally two sessions per month. The first is geared toward the parents and previews the material they will be teaching their children at home. These are held in English and in Spanish. During this meeting the children will meet in grade-level groupings. The second meeting of the month gathers all the families together for different activities based on the liturgical season. These meetings are run bilingually. All sessions begin in the Gym on Sunday mornings from 11:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. .

Please join us on Sunday, Sept. 15, for our Registration & Information session from 11:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. in the Gym!
