Partners in Faith

what is “partners in faith”?

It is an innovative thematic approach to lifelong faith formation that has taken us from a “drop off and pick up” program for our youth to one that embraces all ages and generations.  Partners in Faith is centered in the events of the church and promotes faith growth at home through prayer and participation in church life.

is partners in faith only once a month?    

Yes and no.  We will meet together as a community the first full week of each month for a total of 7 times.  Each registered family will also receive supplemental materials to support continued exploration of the theme at home. 

who participates in partners in faith?

Partners In Faith is open to grades 1-8. Children must be accompanied by an adult;  at least one parent or adult needs to attend with the children in the family.  Of course we welcome any adult in your child’s life to come! For families with more children attending than adults, we leave the choice of which child to accompany that session up to each family.

 what happens to sacramental preparation?

Students in Grade 3 need to participate in Partners in Faith and  additional workshops and experiences (3 for First Reconciliation and a full day retreat for First Eucharist) throughout the year to prepare them adequately to receive these sacraments.   A schedule of these extra sessions is noted on the calendar.  Parents do not attend these sacramental workshops. There is a minimum attendance expectation at the Partners in Faith programs as first and second graders before a student can be admitted into sacrament classes as a third grader.
