Welcome to St. Monica Elementary Faith Formation program. Our program offers religious instruction for children in grades kindergarten through fifth. Classes meet once a week for one hour at the following times:
Tuesday 3:30-4:30PM OR
Wednesday 2:15-3:15PM OR
The four pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church - Creed, Sacraments, Morality, and Prayer- are taught and developed on every grade level every year. Classes include prayer, faith based lessons, stories, games, music, crafts, videos, and all kinds of activities to help children learn about our Catholic faith and how to live it out in daily life.
Faith Formation Classes begin September 20/21, 2016. We encourage you to register your child early so that we can plan accordingly and ensure the best day and time for your child. As an incentive, we offer a discount on registration fees for those who register before Aug. 15. The fee is $130 per student or $300 for three or more students (Grades K-8). After Aug. 15, the fee is $150 per student or $350 for three or more. We do not want any child denied Faith Formation because the fees for participation impose a burden on the family. Please contact the Faith Formation Office regarding this matter.
Sacramental Preparation for First Reconciliation and First Communion is a 2 year program - Children must be enrolled in a faith formation program for at least one year before beginning the preparation process. All children preparing for First Reconciliation and First Communion must include a copy of their Baptismal Certificate with the registration form and an additional $100 Sacramental Preparation Fee. A schedule of parent meetings and sacramental gatherings will be sent out in August.
Our St. Monica Faith Formation program is completely dependent on our volunteer catechists who are willing to share their faith and talents with our children. Please consider teaching or team teaching a class. We provide training and ongoing support. You receive free tuition and advanced placement for your child(ren). If teaching is not a possibility, please consider the other needs listed on the volunteer form. We request that every family help in some capacity.
If you have any questions regarding the program, please contact
