Children's Faith & Spiritual Formation

Baptism

Fr. Patrick meets with new parents to prepare them for the baptism of their children and for being effective Catholic parents. Baptism classes are scheduled as needed throughout the year.

 

Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW)
Lauren Bergesen (206) 524-8800 ext. 105. 

Children’s Liturgy of the Word is offered at 8:30 and 10:30 Mass from late September through mid-June.  This program allows children ages 4-12 the opportunity to leave the main assembly after the opening prayer and gather for a more age-appropriate and engaging proclamation and exploration of the Scriptures.


Sunday Morning Faith Formation Classes
Lauren Bergesen (206) 524-8800 ext. 105

Sunday morning faith formation classes for children in grades preschool—6 will meet 3-4 Sundays per month from late September through June. Classes are held from 9:30-10:20am in the Benincasa Center. We offer three classes: Preschool - K, 1st - 3rd grade,  and 4rd _ 6thgrade.  Classes begin on 9/30/18.

The younger children’s classes will use a curriculum called Godly Play.  The teachers and children will prayerfully and playfully explore parables, sacred stories, the sacraments, prayer and liturgy.

The older children’s class will thoughtfully and creatively explore our faith through the use of a 3-year curriculum called “Finding God.”

* IMPORTANT Note for First Grade Students:  All First Grade students who do not attend a Catholic School, and are planning to participate in First Communion in the Second Grade, are required, by the Archdiocese to attend Sunday School Faith Formation classes during the First Grade.

Sacramental prep classes for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist are offered to children of appropriate age (at least second grade) who have completed the *required prerequiste faith formation classes.  

Please check the dates of classes, and note that attendance at ALL classes is mandatory in order for the child to receive these sacraments. Please also note the dates and times of the required parent meetings.

Children must receive the sacrament of Reconciliation before receiving their First Eucharist, so please make sure that your child attends ALL the necessary classes to prepare for both sacraments.

Register your child for these these classes here.  Please contact Lauren Bergesen, Pastoral Assistant for Faith Formation, with any questions.
