Join us for our Elementary Faith Formation Mass and Ice Cream Social Kick off! Saturday Sept 15th at 5 pm!
We offer traditional religion classes on Sunday mornings from 9:30 to 10:30 for 1st through 5th grade and on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:15 for kinder through 5th grade following the MISD calendar beginning the first weekend after Labor Day through the first weekend of May. If you have any questions concerning class, email Kristin Atkinson at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Calendars will be available soon on the Faith Formation Calendars tab.)
We also offer Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, a Montessori inspired religious formation program, for 3 year olds through 1st grade as another option to traditional class. CGS is offered both in English and bilingual sessions. For more info on this program please see the “Catechesis of the Good Shepherd” page on this website or email Kristin Atkinson at email listed below. Registering for this program, which is an alternative to traditional faith formation classes, can be done on the same form as traditional PSR (Parish School of Religion) classes.
Bilingual classes are also available on Wednesday evenings for children from preschool through 5th grade. For more info on the Spanish classes, contact Leonor Spencer at email@example.com or on the Spanish ministry page.
