Family-Centered Faith Formation
Grades K-8

2023-2024 

 

Family-Centered Faith Formation (FCFF) is for children in grades K-8. The program aims to integrate Catholic teaching into the classroom and into the home. FCFF utilizes Our Sunday Visitor‘s (OSV) Alive in Christ curriculum (see here).

The Open House will take place on September 10th, 2023 at 9:30 a.m. This meeting is for both parents and children. More details to come! 

Each month you and your child(ren) will attend 3 in-person sessions on the first, second, and fourth Sunday of the month. For the third Sunday of the month, your family will be given an activity to complete together that builds on the lesson for the month. The calendar for the year can be found here. Currently, the monthly schedule is::

  • 1st Sunday: large family gathering- 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM, Ministry Center

  • 2nd Sunday: in person at the Immaculata – 9:45 AM - 11:15 AM Saints Hall classrooms

  • 3rd Sunday: in the home

  • 4th Sunday: in person at the Immaculata - 9:45 AM - 11:15 AM Saints Hall classrooms

  • 5th Sunday (if applicable):  in the home

Notably, this year's FCFF in-person lessons for children will include parent sessions at the same time. After you sign your child(ren) into their respective classroom(s), you will join other parents for presentations, prayer and/or faith sharing (calendar of parent sessions will be provided at the beginning of the year).

Sacraments:

First Communion and First Reconciliation are a part of our Family-Centered Faith Formation (FCFF) program.  Children are able to join the sacramental preparation class as soon as they enter 2nd grade. During the year of FCFF, children will complete their preparation for First Reconciliation (Fall) and First Communion (Spring).
