Children (K-7)

About our Faith Formation Programs

Did you know that parents are the primary catechists for their children? Our parish’s Faith Formation program is designed to support parents in this responsibility while leading them to deepen their own relationship with Christ. Be My Disciples is our home-based Faith Formation program designed to help your family grow together in love and understanding of God. This year, we will offer more opportunities to learn as a family with support for parents’ faith journey, as well as opportunities for children to encounter Christ at home and together in community.

Be My Disciples

Weekly sessions for children in grades K-8, taught in your own home during the school year, with occasional family gatherings at either St. Anne’s or St. Patrick’s Hall. Registration is required each year.

This Faith Formation program is designed to work around your busy schedule. Using Be My Disciples, parents teach all of their children together a lesson based on a different theme each week. (The companion series, Stories of God’s Love, is for children in kindergarten.) Each child uses their own grade level copy of the workbooks, containing age-appropriate material and activities related to the weekly theme. The Parent Guide ties it all together for you. Support and community with other families in the program is provided through four Family Gatherings hosted at St. Patrick’s or St. Anne’s throughout the year. Additional resources are offered through email and online. Through this program, we help parents give their children the gift of a well-grounded faith in the midst of their daily lives.
