Family Faith Formation
In response to the directives given to us by the Archdiocese, and restrictions we may have on how we are able to hold Faith Formation classes this year, we have made some big and wonderful changes to our Faith Formation Program at St. Clare and St. Thomas! We have prepared a video explaining our new Family Faith Formation Program. See our VIDEO HERE.
We recognize directives regarding classroom learning for this Fall are very fluid at this time. Our primary objective will always e to provide the safest environment possible as well as a dynamic learning opportunity for all. Please be assured we are working hard to offer options that are in alignment with all Archdiocesan, CDC and State directives. We ask for your patience and understanding as we monitor and adapt to the information in the coming months. Please see our separate Faith Formation Covid Updates page for up to date information and policies as we have them.
Once a month Session!
Each family will choose a once a month session to attend with all their students in grades 1-11 (See 3K-5K page for info about that age group). Sunday Sessions will include Mass. During the class part, students will be separated into small groups by age for their lesson. While your student(s) are in class, we will be providing a Faith Formation curriculum for the parents.
Please see the Family Faith Formation Calendar below for the specific dates each month. Note: The December Calendar changes in schedule due to Christmas.
*We will have a 50 person per session Maximum.
Tuition per student are as follows:
**For grades 7-11 tuition includes the retreat cost (Spiritus for 7th-10th Grade, Confirmation retreat for 11th Grade).
No family is ever turned away for inability to pay. If you are in need of Tuition assistance, please complete the form.
Homeschool and Virtual Options
Although we would love for all students and families to be able to join us in person, we know that this may not be a viable option for some families.
For Grades 1-6, we will be offering a home school study. Materials for students and parent teaching sheets will be distributed each month. The family will take home the materials, work on them and hand back a reflection sheet based on the work done. The materials will be the same as the in class materials.
For Grades 7-11, we will be offering a hybrid homeschool/virtual option. Materials are all accessible at any time via Google Classroom. Students and their families will work on the material at their own pace each month. . There will also be a once a month virtual check in session to see how the students are progressing in their learning of the material.
The Grade 7 & 8, the virtual class will meet on the second Tuesday of the month, and the Grade 9-11 will meet on the fourth Tuesday of the month. Both classes will meet from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm. Virtual video session will be meeting through Google Classroom by clicking on the Google Meets button.
