Elementary Religious Education: Elementary Faith Formation will be the At-Home Program only due to COVID-19. The fees are waived for this program year. Register Here. The At-Home Program, which utilizes the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies curriculum, has a variety of resources on-line. Our staff will be making additional information and activities available through the Family Mass Newsletter.
Our Faith Formation curriculum follows the liturgical calendar and focuses on the Gospel. Pflaum Gospel Weeklies’ lesson plans present a comprehensive, age–appropriate overview of our Christian, Catholic faith. An emphasis is placed on using group and individual activities that respect different learning and teaching styles. There is a strong focus on different types of prayer: personal prayer and reflection, guided meditation and community prayer. An added benefit, which reflects the spirit of SJA, is the lessons’ emphasis on one or more of the Catholic Social Teachings of respect, dignity, caring, responsibility, and relationship with God and others. A number of large-group events, reinforcing the lessons, are scheduled throughout the program year. For at-home activities related to our program go to pflaumweeklies.com. You will need to register on the Pflaum website. Use 1116148 as your customer #. Email mbissonnette [at] stjoan.com with questions. HERE IS THE REGISTRATION FORM
