Thank you for your patience.
Father Robert and I were really hoping to have in house catechism this year but it is obviously not possible. We will revisit this possibility in January 2021.
Thankfully, the Faith and Life program we use has done an absolutely stunning job of putting their program online. There is also room for the catechists to personalize lessons by uploading videos, music, lesson plans, etc… We will also be doing Zoom classes – or some other similar platform – day and time to be determined by catechists. Sessions will be 30 minutes maximum. As per usual, homework will be assigned weekly and should not take more than 30 minutes to complete. We will start once the First Communicants of May 2020 have finished their review – please keep them in your prayer.
Now that we know the format of classes, we are ready to accept registrations. All children in grade one and higher are welcome to participate.
If you are new to the program and have never filled out a 2019 Registration form, you will find it attached to this email. Please fill it and send it in as soon as possible.
Most of you are returning to the program so I will only need you to let me know the following info:
1 – first and last name of each child you wish to register in the program, and their school grade level;
2 – any changes to your contact info, i.e. email address, phone number, etc…
The fee is $100 per student, maximum $200 per family. If your family has been hit financially due to the pandemic, please give what you can. If your family is not struggling financially and can give more, it would be greatly appreciated. Payment can be dropped off/sent to the address below or made through the donate button on our website – please add $4 if choosing the latter to cover the PayPal fee.
Rest assured, Father Robert and I will do everything possible to accommodate your family – and stress level! – during this unusual time. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make this easier for you. We will try our best to accommodate you. Our goal is to celebrate Communion and Confession in May 2021.
Again, thank you for your patience.
Hope to hear from you soon,
