Elementary and Middle School Faith Formation
We have a wonderful Faith Formation program for our elementary and middle school children (preschool through eighth grade).
Classes are held each Wednesday afternoon at 3:00 PM. The public school children are met at 3:00 PM in the foyer of Mather Elementary School and are walked across the street to the LaMothe Hall located in the basement of Sacred Heart of Jesus Church. All Catholic children that attend private schools and schools of choice are invited to join our program.
We begin our program with a low sugar snack which also includes fruit and veggies. The children are sent off to their classrooms by 3:30 PM to begin their lessons.
From 3:30 to 5:00 PM they are engaged in learning about our Catholic Faith through our diocesan approved programs – “We Believe” by Sadlier and “Faith First” by RCL Benziger. The sixth, seventh and eighth grades are using a program called Visions by Pflaum Publishing. Our teachers will frequently include projects, crafts and song to reinforce the lessons.
Classes are scheduled from mid-September through mid-May and are scheduled to coincide with the public school vacation schedule, i.e, Thanksgiving, Christmas and spring break. If a snow day occurs on a Wednesday, our Faith Formation classes are cancelled for that day also.
For more information or to register your children in our program please contact Barbara Hermann, Faith Formation Coordinator, in our parish office, telephone (906) 387-4900 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
