The General Directory for Catechesis points out that parents are the primary educators in the faith. To help families fulfil that role, the parish is purchasing fun faith formation materials for children. Families are encouraged to subscribe to a faith formation program for their children of preschool age through to Grade 8. Each registered child will receive an age-appropriate booklet every week, designed to inspire children and young teens to live the Gospel in their daily lives. The suggested contribution for the 32 booklets is $15.00 per child. The activities in the booklets can be done at home, however children are encouraged to meet in age appropriate groups once a month on a Sunday morning from 10:00-11:00.
Are you interested in receiving these booklets for your children or grandchildren? Would you be willing to lead a session once a month for one of the age groups (Grades K-1, Grades 2-3, Grades 4-6, Grades 7-8)? There are three easy ways to register:
- Online 2014-2015 registration form for the Gospel Weeklies
- Pick up a registration form at the back of the church, or
- In person in the church basement at Coffee Sunday, Sept.21.
