Elementary Faith Formation engages and challenges children in grades 1-6 to put their “faith into action”. Many activities and special events are incorporated into the year to provide diverse experiences for all learning styles.
The curriculum from RCL Benziger is “… rooted in the rich and diverse tradition of the Catholic faith. Our faith formation programs provide an excellent foundation for a lifetime of faith. These parish resources nourish the spiritual well being of each child with the richness of God’s Word, the Church’s teachings, and liturgical expression.”
~ From RCL Benziger overview
Volunteers are needed at every level and with every age group. Volunteer time can be anywhere from 90 minutes a week to serving once a month, or helping with special projects and workshops.
