Deepening our Faith (Wednesday Night Religion - Preschool through Fifth Grade)
"Deepening Our Faith" (DOF) is the Wednesday evening religious education ministry for our preschool through fifth grade students. These classes meet in the school building on Wednesday evenings from 6:15-7:30pm (childcare available for those who have older siblings in 6th through 8th grade). Classes are grouped by grade level and are led by a pair of volunteer catechists. The focus of this program is creating a foundation of faith: What do we believe? What does it mean to receive the Sacraments? How do we pray and connect to God? If we are disciples of Christ, how does that affect the way we live? These are some of the questions our students explore in an interactive setting with a small group of peers. Through the use of "Blest Are We" (a textbook-based curriculum) for classroom instruction, times of prayer, and service opportunities, we have developed a rich and engaging syllabus for classes from October to May.
Event highlights for 2014-2015:
Prayer & Celebrations: During the opening and closing session of the year, as well as during Advent and Lent, we have the opportunity to gather as a large community and pray. Parents are needed and welcome to join us!
Service Opportunities: Students will help meet the needs of others through acts of charity during Advent and Lent.
