Due to the Covid-19 restrictions on gathering, we will offer 2 choices for Middle School Faith Formation during the 2020-21 school year: In-person and also an Online option.
In-Person: We have adjusted the time frame for our gatherings to 7:00-8:30pm as we can no longer incorporate a meal. We do have plans for some individually packaged snacks, treats and water bottles. We are still planning to host our guest speakers in the church where we can safely spread out but still glean the wisdom from both Chris Leach and Mr. Peace. These events will be live streamed for the online participants. Parent volunteers will be essential to helping us safely break into small groups for the participation in the Catechesis and discussions.
Online: We will offer the “Encounter” program for our 6th grade students and “Chosen—This is your Catholic Faith” for the 7th & 8th grade participants. The evenings will last approximately one hour. “Encounter” will begin at 6:30pm and takes our “Genesis” students (6th grade) on a walk through salvation history by getting a glimpse into the Old and New Testament books of the Bible. “Chosen” will begin at 7:45pm and take our 7th and 8th grade “Logos” students on a journey through the entire Catholic Faith in all its richness and vitality. It is the foundation needed before teens begin the journey toward confirmation preparation in 9th grade. Parents will be needed to assist in the online discussion rooms.
Registration for this program is now underway! Parents can join the fun too by volunteering to assist as a small group leader during the in-person sessions or as a small group “Zoom-room” leader for the breakout discussions for the online option. (A sign-up genius link will be sent for volunteering needs after registration for either the online or in-person option)
**Be sure to note the different days and times for the In-person and Online options**
