KINDERGARTEN-8th grade   
FIRST DAY FOR 2017-2018 IS
SEPTEMBER 10, at 10:45am

        Kindergarten through Grade 8 meet on Sunday mornings, 10:45am-11:50am.  Children/youth meet their catechist in the gym and classes leave for classroom at 10:45am.  For children in Kindergarten through 3rd grade who arrive late parents need to take their child to their classroom.  Children older than 3rd grade need to go directly to their classroom.
    
       
Kindergarten through Grade 5 use Finding God, published by Loyola Press.  These texts 
are built around the four pillars of the Catholic Catechism: the Creed (beliefs); Sacraments (worship); Morality (how we live) and Prayer.  The curriculum spirals, meaning that these main areas repeat each year but are covered more deeply with age appropriate content and activities.  

   

  


 Middle School Youth (6-8) use the Catholic Connections! Catholic Connections strengthen the participants' Catholic identity and inspire the youth to participate more fully in the Church's mission.  The sessions in this course help one to make connections between the Catholic faith and every day life.  They also aim to strengthen their connection the to faith community.  The Catholic Connections program offers a comprehensive overview of the Catholic faith correlated with the four pillars of the Catechism.
