Children’s Faith Formation

Here at the Parish of St. Benedict, we believe that parents are the primary teachers of our Catholic faith. In order to assist our families in their spiritual journey, we offer faith formation programs for all grade levels so that, together, we may plant and help grow the seeds of faith.

Our Programs

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

Ages: 3 – 9 years

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is based on a Montessori style learning environment. Classes are held in a room called the Atrium and incorporate hands-on activities to enable your children to learn about their faith in a story-driven, self-directed, spiritual environment.

Journey of Faith for Children

Grades: Kindergarten – 5th

Journey of Faith is a grade level based learning environment that uses workbooks, crafts, skits, and interactive online content to engage your children as they continue their Journey with Christ. As a group, children and their Catechists join together to discuss scripture, tradition, and teachings of the Catholic church. We offer programs for Kindergartners through 5th grade. Our 4th/5th grade program integrates a service learning component to give these newest fully initiated members of our church an opportunity to understand the importance of serving others.

Liturgy of the Word for Children

Grades: Kindergarten – 3rd

Liturgy of the Word for Children  is a supplemental educational program held during the Liturgy of the Word at the 9:00am Sunday Mass. After the entrance procession, children grades K-3 are invited to gather in the back meeting room in the church to hear and discuss the scripture readings at their level, returning to their families after the Homily. This program is free and does not require registration.

Vacation Bible School

Ages: Children of Kindergarten to 4th grade (2017/2018 school year)
Dates: June 12-16, 2017
Times: 9:00 am-noon Monday-Friday
Cost: $55 for the first child, $50 for each additional child

During Vacation Bible School, children will discover a world where curious kids become hands-on inventors who discover they are lovingly crafted by God.

As we play and pray together through the week, your children will play games, sing, create innovative crafts and enjoy snacks. More importantly, they will experience the beautiful ways in which they were created by God and built for a purpose.

Please contact our Children’s Faith Formation Coordinator, Heather Mooney, for more information.
