Summer Programs and Activities (1st-12th grade)

Summer Faith Defenders (6th grade) In-Person Only

$80

with Julie Sawyer

Calendar May 31, 2022 at 6 pm, runs for 2 weeks

Summer Faith Defenders Session (6th - 8th)

Date:  May 31-June 3rd & June 6-9th         Time: 6pm-8:30pm 

There are no make up classes, therefore every session must be attended in its entirety. 

This summer session is offered to our parishioners as an alternative to the traditional once a week class format that is held September through May. There are many challenges for families participating in the traditional weekly class for religious education. This summer program  seeks to accommodate the busy schedules of our families by providing a different option.

*This program will will satisfy the class hour requirement for faith formation. 

*Those who choose this option must also commit to attending a monthly parish event held September through May (for example Trunk or Treat, Ash Wednessday Service, reconciliation) and submit a monthly Mass reflection.

**Parent(s) are required to attend 2 of the evening session with child.

***Please update all of your child's age, grade, sacraments, contact info during registration!

 The evenings will center around the 4 pillars of the church:

  • The Creed - what we believe (Bible story - Timeline)
  • Prayer - how we communicate w//God (prayers, devotions)
  • Sacraments - how we celebrate (Catholic basics)
  • Christian Morality  - how we live it (everyday life & service)

Are you wondering how our Catholic faith fits with the bigger discussions happening in  our culture right now? Are you wondering where you fit in? Do you want to have productive discussions and think more deeply about the tough topics of our time? Are you ready to get out there and make a difference?

We are offering Connected: Catholic Social Teaching Day Camp to our middle schoolers July 25-29. We will spend the first half of each day learning about a particular social teaching and the 2nd half serving in our community, putting into action what we just learned.

Camp will be from 9:30am-4:30pm each day
