Learners learn about our Catholic faith each day. Our instructional team uses many resources in our faith formation program including the Bible, religion text books, as well as supplementary reading material on lives of the saints and Sunday Gospel pamphlets to learn about our Catholic faith. Doctrinal information is presented in a variety of ways and students participate through hands-on activities such as journaling, art projects, skits and retreats. Students participate actively in their learning process through faith sharing, discussion, service and prayer.
Our prayer experiences are many and varied and the students continually show their knowledge of their faith and consistently participate in the journey of faith in the parish community and on our campus. The second grade and middle school retreats are also vital, successful parts of our overall program. Our many and varied strategies demonstrate that our students are successful in the learning of our Catholic faith.
Each grade level participates in a spiritual retreat and hosts a month of focused stewardship annually.
GRADE LEVEL STEWARDSHIP APPEALS
Dear Parish School Families,
This December, the Preschool, TYKE, Kindergarten, and First Grade classes are teaming up for a stewardship project hosting a drive to provide Christmas decorations and gifts to each of the current residents of Casa Teresa in Santa Ana. “Deeply rooted in the Orange County community, Casa Teresa provides pregnant women in crisis a loving home to begin their healing journey. With a trusted and compassionate team of professionals and a proven residential program, we empower pregnant women in learning lifelong skills to end cycles of homelessness, abuse, and addiction; regain control of their futures; and create families that thrive.” For more information on this truly amazing place, please visit their website at www.casateresa.org.
Each grade level will be assigned a resident and family. The links to each grade level’s assigned family’s Sign-up Genius are below. Some residents are expecting their first child and others have additional children as well, so each grade level’s Sign-up Genius will be a bit different. Please bring unwrapped items to your child’s grade level religion (Preschool will go to Mrs. Lavigne and TYKE/Kinder will go to Mrs. Hunt) classroom to be placed in a basket that will be personalized for each resident/family by Thursday December 6th. Some of our upper school learners will be delivering the gifts and decorations to Casa Teresa on Friday December 7th. Thank you so much for your generosity and support of our stewardship ministry.
