What does Faith Formation look like this year?
Moved by our call to empower parents and support the entire family on the path to a better life, Faith Formation is implementing a curriculum to do just that. Using centralized lesson plans, the sessions are designed to ignite children's prayer life and provide parents the tools to enkindle Christ in their Home. Across grades 1-10 faith formation sessions incorporate two parts: the first half gathered in large group led by our Faith Formation staff and ends in small groups where each child can reflect, discuss, and pray together. While Cate, Therese, and Kayla lead the large groups, we invite catechists to lead our small groups. Each lesson is entirely designed by our Faith Formation team to incorporate our Message Series, the Gospel, and above all to form our children's relationship with Jesus Christ. On the last Sunday of each month we offer a Family Session where the entire family can come to be formed in the Body of Christ.
Sunday Children’s Liturgy of the Word
Elementary-aged children are invited to attend the Children’s Liturgy of the Word before the first reading and will return before the Liturgy of the Eucharist. At the Children’s Liturgy, your child will hear the Sunday readings in age-appropriate language, as well as a relevant message that follows the same topic as the regular Mass.
8:30 AM Sunday at Saint Bridget
10 AM Sunday at Our Lady of Fatima
Preschool – Kindergarten
We will offer Catechesis of the Good Shepherd for children 4 – 6 years of age on Sunday mornings.
The CGS approach recognizes the benefit of offering children a hands-on, immersive experience to foster a child’s relationship with God.
