Faith Formation for Families with Children in Grades K-8
FAITH is an acronym for Faith Alive in the Home. It is MPB’s religious education program designed for the whole family to journey in faith together. This program is designed for children in Kindergarten through 8th grade and their parents. It offers greater opportunities to explore and deepen faith as a community while providing a strong foundation for children. There is childcare provided for children ages 3-4 years old. If you have a child under the age of 3, the child may remain with your family for family sessions or private childcare arrangements must be made.
During the 2016-2017 academic year, families will examine their family and personal faith through the lense of a builder. We will look at how our faith is built from the ground up, exploring everything from our foundations to the beautiful ways in which we “decorate” and put our faith into action. Our program will also include on-campus, community-wide service events that challenge us to heed our call to serve those in our community who are in need of our help.
In an effort to provide a dedicated time for families to focus on faith formation, the study sessions for older children, in grades 5-8, who are preparing to receive the sacrament of Confirmation in May 2017 will occur at the same time. Those students preparing for Confirmation will be invited to participate in workshops to focus on Confirmation faith topics while parents and siblings participate in the FAITH program. On the registration form, please indicate that your child, currently in grade 5-8, would like to prepare for Confirmation in May 2017.
The registration fees for the 2016-2017 school year are $90 for the first child and $45 for each additional child. Registration fees cover textbooks and supplies. If this is a problem, please contact The Faith Formation team for scholarship assistance at 303-756-3083 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The FAITH sessions begin with attendance at 9:00am mass followed by breakfast snacks, a keynote presentation, and family group sessions and workshops for Confirmation candidates in the classrooms.
