Child Ministry Program
The Children’s Ministry Program of our parish is a tri-parish program with St. Bernadette and Our Lady of Good Hope. All classes are held at St. Catherine. The program seeks to provide children with the knowledge, experiences, and skills necessary to become faithful and fruitful disciples of Jesus. Parents are the primary educators in the faith, and we are partners with you in your child’s faith journey. Class sessions are held on Wednesday nights from 6 to 7 p.m. in the school. Prayer services and Mass on special days are part of the curriculum. Parents are encouraged to take an active part in their child’s Christian formation through these prayer experiences, as well as parent meetings and other family faith formation opportunities. Check below for information about the 2019-20 class calendar and registration form.
Laudato Si' Founder and Director, Joe Meyer, was our guest speaker at the Christian Formation classes on May 1. The children learned about ways to take care of our common home, the earth.They also learned about bees, butterflies, dragonflies, prairie grass, and predators. Everyone received a honey stick, some wild flower seeds, and a craft to do as a follow-up to the presentation. The children had a great time and know a bit more about God's creation and our role as stewards of God's creation. Click below to see some pictures from the presentation.
