FAMILY CATECHESIS PROGRAM
Who? For children at grade level 1-6 and the age for First Penance & First Communion.
What? A family-based religious education program in which your child (Grade 1 – 5) attends a monthly session with you or a guardian/adult and Grade 6 (no parent/guardian) attends twice a month. We learn about the Faith together and provide resources for you to continue sharing and teaching at home. This program also includes an introductory workshop, retreat, and at-home workbook for preparation for First Penance and First Communion. A young person must complete at least one year of Family Catechesis before starting the preparation for the sacrament of First Penance and First Communion.
