Options for Grades 1-5

Faith Formation 2021-2022 

Grades 1-5

We are excited to welcome your children back to in-person faith formation this fall! Grades 1-5 will meet with their classes every Wednesday at OLL while we remain diligent in best practices to ensure a clean, safe, healthy environment for your children. FF classes will be from 6:30 pm-7:45 pm.

We strive to build God’s kingdom by teaching our youth about the Gospel and how to share His love and truth with others. We work to inspire a genuine love for Jesus and His presence in the Eucharist while strengthening the “Domestic Church” which is the family.

Every third Wednesday will be Family Faith Formation night which includes teaching Masses and activities as part of our faith formation program. We will meet in the Church for Mass at 6:00 PM on these nights.

Our Curriculum is Alive in Christ by Our Sunday Visitor

Christ is the center of our faith, our Church, and catechesis. Alive in Christ is intentional in its focus on the life, mission, and saving work of Jesus Christ. Alive in Christ mirrors Divine Pedagogy and builds knowledge and reverence for Sacred Scripture.

Sacraments

Second grade is a big year for children as they enter into the age of reason and prepare to receive their first Reconciliation and First Communion. Along with faith formation on Wednesday nights and Religion class at OLL there is additional preparation such as; a book and project that is done at home with parents, and Saturday morning retreats to culminate all that is learned prior to receiving the sacraments for the first time. There is an additional registration form if you are planning on your child receiving these sacraments.

Liturgy of the Word

 Children ages 4-10 will be invited to join a catechist during the 10:30 Mass to learn about the Gospel at their level on 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month.
