Ideas for Families to Continue Religious Formation at Home

Sister Joellen

We miss you and your children who always bring joy to us. We are praying for all families struggling with what to do about their child’s religious education especially during these times. I have listed a few possible sites that you may find helpful to continue religious formation at home.

Do attempt to participate in the Sunday services on our parish website and on You Tube. May our dear Lord continue to watch over you, your families, and loved ones.

Catholic Family Faith Formation (CFF/CCD)

The 2020-2021 CFF/CCD Registration will be open for all students (New and Returning) after the quarantine is lifted

CFF/CCD Classes begin in August with parent information meetings.

Parish registration is required for Catholic Family Faith Formation (CFF)/CCD registration to maintain attendance records. Baptism Certificates are required if Baptism was not at St. Andrews. Regular attendance is very important - especially in the Sacrament classes. Part of a child's formation in Faith is learning from you the importance of learning and practicing their faith. Parents and Guardians are welcome in any of the classrooms and to participate in all extra curricula events at all times.
