CHILDREN’S FAITH FORMATION INFORMATION

 

IMPORTANT PARENT ANNOUNCEMENTS

 We will continue using the Gospel Weeklies for all levels except Level 2 who will use the new "Go, Seek" Find" program to prepare for Reconciliation and First Communion this year.

All students have received their Mass Reflections which are due in March, 2018. 

Mass reflections are a requirement for moving onto the next level!

* * * * * * * * * * 

We appreciate the willingness of our catechists, hall helpers and classroom aides who help us support parents in the vital responsibility of passing on our faith to God's little ones.

* * * * * * * * * *

 

We need some additional classroom aides in various levels. This would be a weekly commitment, adults over 18 have to attend a VIRTUS class, a 2 hour information session on "Protection for All God's Children."  It is a rewarding way to be involved in our program; your children will be glad you helped and you will too!

IN ADDITION, WE ALWAYS NEED HALL HELPERS. 

High School Students: Being a hall helper or classroom aide is a great way to get community service hours in high school. We welcome all students who would enjoy helping young ones stay safe while learning about God and our faith.

Hall helpers (teen or adults) assist us by being in the hallways during classtime, escorting students to the rest rooms, assisting teachers in getting supplies, etc. Adults who are in the building to drop their children off at classes are often willing to help out during the hour of class time by being hall helpers or aides in the classrooms. Please consider this needed service for your children in our program.

NOTE: All (over age 18) who are involved with the children in any capacity are required to attend a VIRTUS 2-hour course, for the protection and safety of our children. You must be registered online before attending the course.  Go to www.virtusonline.org and sign up for an upcoming class. When you attend, be sure to get a certificate of completion. We will keep this on file at CTK Parish.

YOU MUST REGISTER ONLINE AT: www.virtus.org - PRIOR TO ATTENDING YOUR VIRTUS SESSION. THANK YOU.

Level 1 News

We welcomed almost 100 new students in Level 1 this year. Children are meeting with their catechists on either Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday of each week. Each family purchased the Catholic Children's Bible. Please encourage your child to look through this beaurtiful book and perhaps review the weekly Gospel passage in their very own bibles at home! This would be a wonderful way to spend quality time with your child!
