Faith Formation 2020-21
Dear Families of St Michael’s,
We are excited to be welcoming you to another year of Faith Formation! This year, all Faith Formation programming – including preK-5th grade, sacrament prep, and Teen Group – will meet on Wednesday evenings. We hope this will provide an atmosphere of excitement among the children, as well as ease for parents who are balancing the schedules of more than one child. Faith Formation Wednesday will take place in our Faith Formation Center, while Sacrament Prep will continue to be in the Zryd Parish Center, please see below for times and information about each program. We understand the past few months have been a whirlwind of change, stress, and difficult decisions for your family; while some things will look different this year in our classrooms, God’s love remains and now more than ever, our children need to learn about his strength and love.
We are excited to be offering our Elementary program on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:00. Parents will be asked to bring children to the classroom to sign them in - an elementary student may not sign themselves in. We have worked to maintain the 6ft social distancing in our classroom and will be working in stations to allow us this space. All students (and parents) are required to wear masks while in the Faith Formation Center and classroom. Please contact Ashley Maves, firstname.lastname@example.org, with any questions or if you would like to volunteer to help in the classroom.
Our Teen Group will continue to meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:45. This group is for Middle School and High School age students. All students (and parents) are required to wear masks while in the Faith Formation Center and Teen Room. Please contact Marcia Parkkonen, email@example.com, with any further questions about this group.
Lastly, our Sacrament prep for both First Communion (2nd grade) and Confirmation will take place twice a month on Wednesday evenings. This class is offered in two sessions, 5:00-6:00 OR 6:15-7:15, please pick the one that works best for you. All students (and parents) are required to wear masks while in the Parish. Contact Kathy Farrell, firstname.lastname@example.org, with further questions about sacrament prep.
As we gear up for a new year, we will keep all our St Michael families in our prayers. We can’t wait to see you all again soon!
